Eighth grader Alexander Nawn emerged the winner of this year’s Devon Prep Middle School Geography Bee, a challenging test of geographic knowledge conducted by Devon’s Geography Teacher Mr. George Beothy. Eighth grader Daniel Shannon took second place and eighth grader Michael Weir took third in this year’s competition. As the Geography Bee winner Alexander will take the written qualifying test for state competition. The top 100 students (based on qualifying test scores) will then represent their schools and compete in an oral competition at the state level. In May state winners will compete in the national finals for scholarships in the amount of $25,000, $15,000 and $10,000.
