After successfully displaying his vast knowledge of geography-based information, Academy Elementary School fifth-grade student Ben Hamrlicek was declared the winner of the school’s 2018 National Geographic Bee. 

Prior to his big win, Ben successfully answered six preliminary questions in his classroom and answered three questions correctly in the championship round to secure his victory. Ben, whose favorite school subject is social studies, will take a written test to further advance in the nationally-recognized competition. 

The district sends its deep congratulations to Ben.
