Winner Named in Geographic Bee

The winner of East Hampton Middle School’s 18th annual National Geographic Bee was Devon Merritt. Devon will now take the New York State qualifying test to see if he is eligible to advance to the state bee in Albany. The second-place winner was seventh-grader Aidan Cooper; third place went to sixth-grader Jax Cantwell.

The National Geographic Bee was begun in 1998 to promote knowledge of geography and to help students develop an interest and understanding of world cultures. It has become a well-loved tradition at the middle school. Congratulations to all the participants!
