Geography Bee Champ

Geography Bee Champ
For the third year in a row, middle school eighth-grader Aaron Held has won his school’s National Geographic Geography Bee.

Aaron took first place after spending his recess period competing against over 30 of his fellow students during the week of Jan. 9. He placed just ahead of sixth-graders Ben Perez-Flesler, Teppei Fukuto, Olivia Ross and Amy Whitman.  

Aaron now has the opportunity to qualify for the state geography bee by taking a regional online qualifying test. The results of that exam will be made available in early March.

The Port Jefferson School District extends its congratulations to Aaron and wishes him continued success in the competition.
