Students Compete in Incarnate Word's Geography Bee

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Where is Tierra del Fuego? That was just one the questions facing some of the brightest kids in our area. Youngsters took part in Incarnate Word Academy's middle-level Geography Bee on Friday.

Sixth, seventh and eighth graders battled it out to see who would advance to the state bee happening in April. The winner of that moves on to the National Geographic Bee happening at the end of May.

"There was a mix of oral questions that you had to answer, and you had to answer questions from the map," said Gabriel Rauen, the winner of IWA's Geography Bee.

By the way, Tierra del Fuego is located in the southernmost tip of the South American mainland.
