The top 100 geography bee students from across Minnesota competed at the 2012 Minnesota Geographic bee on Friday, March 30 at St. Cloud State University.
Two Alexandria District 206 students participated - Matthew Bittmann, an 8th grader at Discovery Middle School, and Wil Kopp, a 6th grader at Woodland Elementary School.
After the preliminary and tiebreaker rounds were completed, Bittmann advanced to the final round with nine other students.
Students were gradually eliminated with Bittmann finishing in 4th place.
