On Friday, January 23rd, Oakley held it's third annual Geography Bee in the Media Center hosted by Mr. Schmidt. All fourth and fifth graders took a preliminary test back in December.
The top 23 scorers on that preliminary test participated in the Final Competition at Oakley on Friday. After an amazing effort by all the students, Mariah McMinn (Mrs. Beam's class) came away as the Oakley winner!! Mason Blau (Mrs. Ryan-Bailey's class) was the runner up.
I am so proud of the effort and sportsmanship showed by these kids. They did an amazing job and had a lot of fun.
Congratulations again to Mariah! As the school winner, she will now take an online Geography Test to see if she qualifies for the NC State BEE!
