On Dec. 13 the Hobson School held its annual Geography Bee in the multi-purpose room. After the preliminary round, which included all four eighth-grade students, there were 10 finalists: Wyatt Korst, Sawyer Campbell, Lauren Deegan, Jadyn Frank, Taten Erickson, Ashton Deegan, Grace Loose, Joshua Nachtigal, Sammi Wichman and Heath Drivdahl.

The students did a great job getting down to our two finalists: Sammi Wichman and Heath Drivdahl.

The winner of our GEO Bee was sixth-grader Heath Drivdahl for the second year in a row. He will now take an online test that will determine if he qualifies for the state GEO Bee competition in Billings this spring.
