"The Gulf of Guinea is a major offshore oil exploration and drilling zone off the west coast of what continent?" was the geographic question that determined Conor Kincaid, fifth-grader in Lucy Potter's Harborview Elementary School class, as this year's Geo Bee champion.
As the school champion, Kincaid will take a qualifying test in early January. If he is one of the top 100 scorers in Alaska, he will advance to the state championship, which will be held April 3 in Anchorage. Harboview congratulates you, Conor!
Harborview also congratulates all finalists: Elias Antaya, Bradley Gilbert, Katherine Kane, Jeryn Knapp, Forest Kobayashi, Anton Rieselbach, Ian Scholl, Laurel Sheufelt and Duncan Smith. Finalists demonstrated outstanding geographic knowledge and good sportsmanship.
A big thanks to Tom McKenna, Diane Antaya, Julie Leary and Laura Imamura for helping with the geo bee competition this year!
