For the third straight year middle school eighth-grader Mouhammad Seck won the school’s Geography Bee on Jan. 23.

This newest achievement follows up Mouhammad’s sixth place finish at the New York State competition in Albany last year. He will once again look to advance to the state level by scoring within the top 100 during the next round’s online written test for the 31st annual National Geographic Bee. The state winners will advance to the national championship rounds in Washington, D.C., to be eligible for a $50,000 college scholarship.

Prior to the middle school’s final competition, every social studies class held its own bee to determine 10 finalists to participate in the building level contest. Mouhammad claimed victory for a third straight year while fellow eighth-grader Aiden Sargent earned runner-up.

The district congratulates Mouhammad and wishes him the best of luck in future rounds!
