The FSAPS Social Studies Department held its 13th annual school-wide National Geographic Geography Bee on Wednesday, January 27th. We had a number of qualifiers for the Bee representing students in the 4th through 8th grades, which moved through several preliminary rounds before settling on our finalists.

The championship round was the most heated, taking five rounds before 7th grader Arul Selvakumar eventually prevailed over the other competitors.

Arul cruised through the preliminary and championship rounds faced off against 6th grader Nishanth Arumugam in the final round. In the finals, Arul kept up his momentum by answering each of his questions correct missing none throughout the entire competition from the class bee through to his eventual championship-winning answer.

Arul will complete a qualifying test for the chance to represent FSAPS in the state Geography Bee this April and potentially to the national championship in Washington DC in May.

Thanks again to all of our competitors and good luck to Arul!

1st Place: 7th grader Arul Selvakumar

2nd Place: 6th grader Nishanth Arumugam

3rd Place: 8th grader Nishad Kute
