Geography Bee Contestants

Lebanon Junior High School Geography Bee Results

Lebanon Junior High competes each year in the National Geographic Geography bee, allowing students to test their knowledge of geography around the world.  LJHS has consistently sent students to the state competition!  This year students participated in preliminary rounds in each social studies classroom.  The social studies department worked together to determine our top 10 students based on their scores in the preliminary rounds.  Five 7th grade students and five 8th grade students were selected to compete after school in the final round of the bee.  Our top 10 competed against one another by answering a series of questions until only two students remained.  Those two contestants competed in the Championship round to determine our school winner.  The next step for our champion is to complete an online qualifying test to compete in the state competition held each spring at The Ohio State University.   

Congratulations to our Geography Bee contestants that participated in our school competition on January 18th:
