National Geographic Geography Bee 2020
Geo Bee Winners

This year, West Brook participated in the National Geographic Geography Bee! The Geo Bee is a national academic competition for grades four through eight in which students answer questions about geography. Students were asked a round of questions, and a winner from each class participated in the finals round. Our 2020 Geo Bee school winner is 8th grader Peter Sawyer! Peter can now go on to qualify for the state and even the national Geo Bee competition. We wish Peter the best of luck in the next round of the competition!
