NATIONAL GEOGRAPHY BEE 2015
For the 27th consecutive year, the Ovid-Elsie Middle School participated in the National Geography Bee. This is sponsored by the National Geographic Society and Google. The bee was instituted several years ago by teacher Mickey Howard to encourage interest in geography.
All middle school students participated in a first round questionnaire and10 students advanced to the school finals. This round was held in the gymnasium on January 15th, 2015 in front of the entire student body and staff members. The 10 students who qualified for the finals were: Noah Payne, Matt Russell, Adam Peckens, Weston Kvalevog, Cayden Flynn, Ella Sheedlo, David Hammond, Blake Bensinger, Joey Cooper, and defending school champion Henry Gruber.
The finals competition came down to a championship round featuring Matt Russell and Noah Payne, with Mr. Payne outlasting Mr. Russell to become the 2015 Ovid-Elsie Middle School National Geography Bee Champion. Matt did an outstanding job as well, and finished as the runner-up. Noah will now take the qualifying exam that will be sent on to the National Geographic Society headquarters to be scored. The top 100 scores for the qualifying test will then determine who will go on to the state competition to be held at Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant. From the state level of competition one winner will go on to compete at the national level and a chance for a $25,000 scholarship.
Mr. Latz and Mr. Zalud coordinated the bee at the Ovid-Elsie Middle School. Congratulations to all the participants, for a job well done.
