Middle School Students Earn Multiple Awards At History, Geography And Science Bees

Lausanne students in 6th through 8th had the opportunity to challenge their knowledge last weekend during the highly anticipated Middle School Regional Finals for the History, Geography and Science Bees. Sponsored by International Academic Competitions, each bee is a buzzer-based competition in which the students participate in three preliminary rounds, with qualifiers moving on to a final round. 

The event was held at Lausanne and consisted of student contestants from Tennessee, Kentucky and Arkansas. Of the Lynx participants, nine qualified to move onto Nationals, and three earned early qualification to move onto Internationals.  

"We'd like to congratulate all of our participants and cheer on those moving on to the National Championship in Orlando, FL, in June," Middle School teachers Catherine Hammons and Brooke Hoffman shared.
