Randall School conducted its annual Geography Bee on Wednesday, Jan. 18.  Classroom finalists from grades 4-8 competed.

The Randall winner of the 2016-17 competition is Arianna Karow, an 8th grader.  The second place finisher was Ian Kerkman, a 5th grader.

The school bee, where students answered questions on geography, was the first round in the 29th annual National Geographic Bee. Thousands of schools around the United States and in the five U.S. territories are participating in the 2017 Bee. The school champions, including Arianna, will now take a written test. Up to 100 of the top scorers on that test, in each state, will then be eligible to compete in the state level competition.

The Wisconsin State Bee will be held on March 31.
