     The Nemaha Central Elementary and Middle School geography bee was held on Friday, December 15. The participants were Kaleb Reitz and Ellie Mady in 8th grade; Lilly Schultejans and Garrett Huerter in 7th grade; Conor Deters and Abe Hilbert in 6th grade; and Zoey Sudbeck and Spencer Lockhart in 5th grade. Kace Kramer and Cooper Hajek participated as well because they won the wildcard spots.

    Mrs. Nikki Honeyman, the social science teacher, hosted the bee. She read the instructions and rules aloud and then the competition was on as Mrs. Honeyman read the first question aloud.  The contestants only had 15 seconds to answer the question they were asked. The questions started easy but then got harder and harder as the rounds went on.

    As each round progressed, more and more people were eliminated until there were only a few of the contestants left. When there was only one person left, that person was declared the winner. The winner of the geography bee was Abe Hilbert from 6th grade.

     Abe Hilbert said, “It was a very hard and challenging geography bee.”

    Abe Hilbert will now take a written test to see if he gets the opportunity to go to the state geography bee. If he passes the test with a high score, he will go to the state competition. He will also be able to compete against other geography bee contestants if he makes it to state. We wish him good luck and hope he makes it!

    The rest of the contestants received sodas and a snack. The contestants also got a participation ribbon for their effort in the geography bee. Overall, everybody tried and did amazing in the geography bee. The contestants were all spectacular sports. They got rewarded for their effort and the geography bee was over.

    Garrett Huerter said, “I think it was the hardest geography bee I have ever been in.”
