Pflugerville ISD hosted its 11th annual Geography Showcase on Saturday, Feb. 2 at Pflugerville High School.
Eighth-grade student Zachary Lucas of Park Crest Middle School captured first place overall at the event. Fifth-grade student Otto Freeland of Dearing Elementary and eighth-grader Elena Alvarado of Kelly Lane Middle School finished second and third overall, respectively.
The Geography Showcase celebrates geography education in grades 4-8. The contestants, all campus winners of the National Geographic Bee competition, answer questions about local, state, national and world geography.
Students will also take a qualifying test in hopes of participating in the state contest on March 29. Winners at the state level advance to the National Geographic Bee in Washington, D.C. in May.
