SHS Hosts Middle School Geography Bowl
Stevenson’s Geography Club held its inaugural Middle School Geography Bowl at the school Monday night. Students from Woodlawn Middle School competed on teams with Stevenson students in six rounds of competition.
The Geography Bowl was the brainchild of junior Ishaan Khullar and sophomore Sahan Yalarthi. The goal: To share their love of geography trivia with middle school students and open the doors of SHS to future Patriots. The pair hope to expand the competition to include all of Stevenson’s sender schools. Woodlawn students who competed were eighth-grader Sarah Kogan, seventh-graders Ryan Barua and Diana Tang, and sixth-graders Noah Hanif and Jingyi Wu. Their sponsor was Woodlawn social studies teacher Gloria Ufheil.
