CROSSROADS STUDENTS PLACE FOR STATE COMPETITION IN GEOGRAPHY BEE EXAM
Congratulations to all students who competed in the Online Regional Qualifying
Geography Bee Exam, which is part of the International Academic Competition. On
Sunday, February 27, 2022, many of our students qualified to participate in the Delaware
Regional Finals Geography Bee and three seventh graders placed for the State
Competition. Those students are:
First Place: Kapil Chamarty-7th grade Crossroads South
Second Place: Om Bhaskar-7th grade Crossroads North
Third place: Sammy Asefa-7th grade Crossroads North
The qualifying students competed in three live initial rounds which had 30 questions
each and then a final round. The next step for our three winners is the State
Competition. South Brunswick sends well wishes for the next steps of the competition!
There will be an additional online Geography Bee soon for those students who placed in
the Regional Competition and prefer to participate online. We wish those students good
South Brunswick would also like to acknowledge the Crossroads social studies teachers
for facilitating the Online Regional Qualifying Exam in their classes. Special thanks to
Mike Bottino, 7th grade Social Studies Teacher from Crossroads South, and Catherine
O’Keefe, 7th grade Social Studies Teacher from Crossroads North, for facilitating the
competition at their respective buildings.
