Kevin Halloran, a fourth-grader at Bellew, won the school’s National Geography Bee. Fifth-graders Nico Acosta and Marley Grover finished second and third, respectively. A total of eighteen Bellew students from the Geography Explorers Club participated in the competition.

As champion, Halloran will advance to the next level by taking a qualifying test to determine state competitors. If he qualifies, he will earn a seat at the New York State competition in Albany. The final competition will be held in May in Washington, DC, where students compete for college scholarships. 

“A great job to all of our student participants who went above and beyond in their quest to learn more about the wonderful world in which we live,” said Principal Rhonda Pratt.
