Where in the World?
“Where in the World are the Prince Geography Bee winners?” a student might ask Carmen Sandiego…
The 2014 winners of the school Geography Bee may not have ever heard of the once popular TV show and video game called “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego,” but they certainly know where to find the type answers that might be asked in the show were televised today.
After surviving several rounds of difficult questions relating to world geography, sixth grade student Trent Nesbit took home the top prize in the Prince Avenue Christian School bee on Wednesday. Placing second through fourth were eighth graders Luke Wells (2nd), Sara Thompson (3rd), Jon Varghese (4th), while sixth grader Jacob Bennett placed fifth.
