The fourth and fifth grade students at Hurt Elementary School participated in the National Geographic Bee on December 9, 2019. Students were questioned using material prepared by the National Geographic Society. Participants were narrowed down to a set of finalists. These students were eager to show what they have learned throughout the years about geography and world events. Fourth grader Ian Johnson emerged as the first place winner for the school. Second place was claimed by fifth grader, Jonathan Faris. Third place recognition was earned by fourth grader, Jacob Myers. The following students received participation awards: Kelsey Bowling, Sophia Duley, Johnathan Mayer, Bradlee Butcher, Avery Jennings, Jr., Tyler Hedrick, Spencer Short, Amber Tucker, A’livia Alexander. Each school winner will now take an online test to determine the top 100 scores across the state. Those finalists will compete in the State Bee.
