Fayette County Students Advance to State Geography Bee

The port of Rotterdam is built on the delta of which major European river? If you are struggling with the answer, then you might call on one of Fayette County's State Geography Bee qualifiers for help.

Logan Austin, 8th grade, Bennett’s Mill Middle; Ali Jawad, 8th grade, Flat Rock Middle and Sam Burgess, 6th grade, Rising Starr Middle, will represent Fayette County at the 2008-09 Georgia Geography Bee on April 3 at Georgia College and State University.

They are among 100 of the state’s brightest students in grades 4-8 selected to participate in the competition. Their selection was based on their performance on a written test to determine their eligibility to compete at the state level. In order to take the written test, students must first win their individual school’s competition. The competition is affiliated with the National Geographic Bee.

By the way, the answer to the question is the Rhine River.
