Woodland Middle School’s Mitchell Goldberg and W.T. Clarke Middle School’s Nicholas Spano, recently earned their school’s geography bee champion title.
    
Held at their respective buildings, middle schoolers participated in the school-level competition of the 29th annual National Geographic Bee, for which they answered questions covering numerous facets of geography in the United States and the world.
    
Both winners will join students from across the country in taking an online written test as part of the next round of competition. The top 100 scorers in each state will then be eligible to compete in their state bee. The state winners will advance to the national championship rounds in Washington, D.C., where they will have the chance to win a $50,000 college scholarship.
    
The district wishes Mitchell and Nicholas much success as they continue in the competition.
