13 students from Prairie Wind Middle School participated in the school-level competition of the National Geographic GeoBee on Monday, Jan. 14. Jaxon Bain, a seventh-grade student, won first place with Alex Nash, an 8th-grade student taking second and Molly Pearson, and 8th-grade student finishing in third place.

The school-level competition is the first round in the annual National Geographic GeoBee, a geography competition designed to inspire and reward students' curiosity about the world. School champions, including Jaxon, will take an online qualifying test; up to 100 of the top test scorers in each state then become eligible to compete in their State GeoBee. The winners of the State GeoBees may advance to Washington D.C. for the finals.
