On Jan. 13, Palmer Elementary School held the school portion of the National Geographic Geography Bee.
Eight fifth-graders vied for the title of school champion. The winner was Allison McKenzie (right), and coming in second place was Joey Demjanenko (left). The school is waiting for the results of a written test McKenzie took that will determine if she qualifies for the state portion of the geography bee.
The other finalists in Palmer's geography bee were Allyson Burzynski, Meghan Hansen, Brandon Schmid, Patrick Jennejahn, Kelly Pinkerton and Ryan Ingerson.
