St. Augustin Geography Bee

School Geography Bee

Congratulations to our overall school champion, Roan Milligan!


Geography teacher, Mr. Grimm with grade-level finalists.

Each year St. Augustin is one of thousands of schools to participate in the National Geographic Bee using materials prepared by the National Geographic Society.  Fourth through eighth-grade students participate in trivia elimination rounds in their classrooms to establish grade level winners.  These winners move on to test their geographic knowledge in the fourth through eighth-grade school competition to become the overall school champion.  Congratulations to this year's winner seventh grader, Roan Milligan!

The overall school winner has a chance at qualifying for the Iowa State Geography Bee by submitting a State Bee Qualifying Test.  The field is narrowed to only 100 students from across the state that will compete in the Iowa State Geography Bee in the spring.

 A very special thank you to our Middle School Social Studies teacher, Mr. Grimm for coordinating this fun event for our students!
