St. Johns Lutheran participates in two Academic Competitions
In grades three through eight, we recognize students who have earned honor roll recognition through their studies. Our school participates in the National Geography Bee, and our school competes in the area Lutheran Schools’ Spelling Bee. Students in grades six through eight demonstrate their artistic talents by participating in the local Lion’s Club Peace Poster Contest. The Peace Poster winner at St. Johns then goes on to regional competition.
National Geographic Bee
Thousands of schools around the United States and in the five U.S. territories are participating in the 2018 National Geographic Bee. The school champions take a qualifying test; up to 100 of the top scorers on that test in each state will then be eligible to compete in their state Bee.
The National Geographic Society will provide an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C., for state winners to participate in the Bee national championship.
Everyone can test their geography knowledge by downloading the “National Geographic GeoBee Challenge” app, with more than 1,000 questions culled from past Bees, available on the App Store for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad; from the Android Market; or for NOOK Color. National Geographic Society is a global nonprofit membership organization driven by a passionate belief in the power of science, exploration and storytelling to change the world. We fund hundreds of research and conservation projects around the globe each year. With the support of our members and donors, we work to inspire, illuminate and teach through scientific expeditions, award-winning journalism, education initiatives and more.
