Moves step closer to $50G scholarship

HARVARD — Matt Atwell, a seventh-grade student at Bromfield, has won the school-level competition of the National Geographic Bee. The Dec. 23 school-level bee, at which students answered oral questions on geography, was the first round in the 28th annual National Geographic Bee.

Earlier in December, Atwell and second-place finisher Julian Iverson won their way into the school-level bee during preliminary classroom competitions. Other participants included sixth-graders Faith Massoni, Chloe Scornavacca, Sophie Thompson and Geraghty Vellante; seventh-graders Carter Curry, Meredith Greayer, Max Strazdus and Lin Lin Yu; eighth-graders Dylan Ashe, Zach Bourque, Henry DiNapoli, Shreya Kumar and Liza Toll.

Atwell, and other school winners from around the state, will now take an online test; top scorers from Massachusetts will be eligible to compete in the state bee on April 1.
