Shaelynn Hall, left, won the the Heritage Middle School Geography Bee Dec. 12, while Mya Pullins, right, was runner-up among the 17 contestants in grades 5-8. Community member Carol Diamond asked questions from National Geography Bee-provided materials. Bee organizer Cynthia Christiansen, teacher at Heritage, kept score. After 70 minutes, only Hall and Pullins remained in the contest. Both girls missed the first finalist question. The second question was missed by Pullins but answered correctly by Hall, making her the 2013-2014 winner of the Heritage Middle School Geography Bee. She will take a state qualifying test in January to try to move on to the next level of competition.
