Simpson heads to state Geography Bee
New Richmond eighth grader River Simpson is on a roll.
After taking first place in the Middle School Geography Bee Jan. 4, Simpson took a written test, which moved him into position as a contender at the state level Geography Bee.
Simpson will travel to De Pere, Wis. with his family on April 4 to participate in the State Geography Bee, which will be held at St. Norbert College.
"I'm excited," Simpson said, "and a little nervous."
