Can you answer the final question of the Geography Bee held at school this morning? The Seikan Tunnel connects the island of Hokkaido with what other Japanese island? Or any of the other questions our eight brilliant finalists had to answer? Delaware Bay separates the state of Delaware from which state to the northeast?

For the second year in a row, 8th grader Ryan could and was declared the winner of the school Geography Bee. Ryan will now take the written version next week to qualify for the State Bee in Sacramento.

Congratulations to all the school finalists - you do us proud.
