HARVARD -- Once again, Yohann Kumarasinghe, a seventh grade student at Bromfield, has won the school-level competition of the National Geographic Bee.
The Dec. 20 school-level Bee, at which students answered oral questions on geography, was the first round in the 26th annual National Geographic Bee, sponsored by Google.
Earlier in December, Kumarasinghe and second-place finisher Drew Femino won their way into the school-level bee during preliminary classroom competitions. Other participants included sixth-graders Olivia Diodato, Eli Fishbein, Tommy Hart, Tom Khuu and Magnus Miller; seventh-graders Jake Catalina, John Hart, Alice Pope, and Patrick Stoffel; eighth-graders Josh Canning, Rachel Ferguson, Jack Kelley, and Ben Williams.
Kumarasinghe and other school winners from around the state will now take a written test; top scorers from Massachusetts will be eligible to compete in the state Bee on April 4, 2014.
