Geography Bee champ, coach to judge local contest
Attendees will have a chance to compete and show off their geography knowledge. Competitors are invited to put their names in a hat. Twenty-five contestants then will be selected at random to participate in a seven-round geography bee. Spectators are welcome. All ages are invited to compete.
Borecki and Ivey, who has coached the champion for five years, will judge the competition.
The bee will be followed by a question-and-answer session with them.
In June, state Rep. Terrie Wood, R-141, recognized Ivey for coaching seven state Geography Bee winners, which is a national record. She awarded Ivey with a state citation.
The winner will receive a one-year subscription to National Geographic magazine and a $100 American Express gift card.
