Students at Rossman School placed first among sixth graders and second among fifth graders in the National Geography Challenge this spring.

In the nationwide challenge, the scores of the top 10 students are combined to determine the team score. Rossman’s sixth grade class won its division, recording a team average of 88%. Also averaging 88%, the fifth grade team finished just 21 points behind the national champions. 

The National Geography Challenge is sponsored by the National Council for Geographic Education. The written exam tests general knowledge of geography, map skills, interpreting charts and graphs and reading comprehension.

This is the fifth national title Rossman has claimed in this competition.
