Ferraro Wins Harrison Middle School Geography Bee

HARRISON, N.Y. - Harrison seventh grader Olivia Ferraro bested 11 of her classmates last week in a national geography bee competition held at Louis M. Klein Middle School, earning the chance to compete at the state level.

A dozen seventh graders from the school were chosen to compete in the preliminary rounds for their social studies classes on Jan. 13 under the direction of teachers Roseann Fiore and Deirdre Macneill. After several rounds of competition, Ferraro was named the winner over finalist Elijah Gropper after identifying Mexico as the country that is home to the Mayan ruins.

Ferraro's next challenge will be a written examination. If she excels, she will move onto a competition at the state level.

The finalists were: Jordan Cannell, Olivia Ferraro, Maxim Fujita, Connor Gates, Vito Gonnella, Elijah Gropper, Rory McDermott, Maribel Ramirez, Elijah Salem, Daniel Schapiro, Ilexa Schechter, and Adolfo Viruet.
