Every middle school student participated in a classroom Geography Bee where one winner was chosen in each homeroom.  Those 20 winners then competed to narrow the field down to 10.  These final 10 students competed Friday in Acuff Chapel in front of the entire middle school.  From that competition, Jimmy Gilfilen was crowned the middle school champion for the 2012-2013 school year!  Gilfilen will soon compete regionally by taking a written test at school.  If he scores high enough, he will be able to compete in the state and possibly even the national competition hosted by Alex Trebek.  We are all so proud of all the students who competed in the Geography Bee!
