Ollar makes it to top 10
Jarett Ollar, winner of the Challis Schools Geography Bee, put his knowledge and initiative to work and earned a spot at the State Geography Bee last month. After placing first in the local bee, Ollar had to pass a qualifying test before earning his way to state competition. This Challis seventh-grader competed against 77 other Idaho students in grades four through eight March 31 at BYU-Idaho in Rexburg.
Ollar made it into the top 10 and the final round.
The winner of the state bee was Nicholas Monahan, a McCall eighth-grader, who will go on to Washington, D.C., for national competition. This was Monahan’s third win.
