WA State Geography Bee & Seattle Camino de Santiago

Q.  In which country did unrest in late 2016 and early 2017 in the city of Kinshasa result after President Joseph Kabila decided not to step down?

Q.  Some of the earliest rugby balls were made out of pig bladders near the river Avon in this country.

These questions and many others were part of the preliminary round of the Washington State Geography Bee, held in Tacoma on Pacific Lutheran University’s campus on Friday, March 31.  Louie S., 6th grade, competed against 99 other 4th – 8th grade students from around the state at the Bee and represented St. John School well. We’re proud of his efforts!
