Zane Middle School held its final competition for the National Geographic Bee on Tuesday, January 14.  Zane’s school champion was Alyssa Jimenez, a seventh-grader.  Runners up were Rocci Costa (2nd place) and Sophia Gallegos (3rd place).  Alyssa won by correctly answering the following question, “The Yaghan were a nomadic tribe indigenous to Tierra del Fuego, an island group that is divided between Argentina and what other country?”  (answer: Chile)  Alyssa will now take a geography test to apply for one of the hundred places in the California State Bee.
