Seventh grader Jasper Lemberg (center) won first place for the second consecutive year in the Geography Bee held at Roosevelt Intermediate School in Westfield. Next to Jasper are 8th grader Andrew Dazzo (left), who earned second place, and 6th grader Declan LeWarn, placing third. Principal Stewart Carey (far right) and Assistant Principal Brian Gechtman were on hand to congratulate the winners. Jasper will take a written test as the next step to advance to the state level competition in the spring. Tests are reviewed in the next few months, with the National Geographic Society notifying schools of state contenders.
