Some of the top geography students in Tomahawk elementary and middle schools showed off their skills yesterday.
Ten students in 5th through 8th grade took the National Geographic Bee yesterday to determine the school representative.
Each grade level sent their top geography bee students to the school level. Those finalists include 5th graders, Jade Wanta and Mady Hanse; 6th graders Evan Ploekelman and Jackie Wick; 7th graders Melanie Ruether, Jake Ruid, and Michaela Hess; and 8th graders Quinn Casey, Lane Beaumier, and Casey Perry.
In the end, Evan Ploekelman was determined the 1st place winner. He will now take a written state qualifying test. The state judges will take the top 100 students from those to move on.
Runners up were Lane Beaumier in 2nd, Quinn Casey 3rd and Jade Wanta 4th.
