National Geographic Finalists

March 29, 2019

The GeoChallenge is a standards-based competition from the National Geographic Society that challenges student groups to develop a creative solution to a real-world problem. These groups respond to a problem, challenge, or critical issue by using research, collaboration, creativity, and communication to create and present real-world solutions. Three LMS Teams were selected to advance to the regional competition in Bloomington Normal.

This year’s challenge—Tackling Plastic—invited students to learn about the problems facing plastic pollution while building skills in geography, mapmaking, storytelling, and video production.

LMS Teams did an amazing job today.  We are so very proud of them.

LMS was selected as the 2nd Place winner of this years GeoChallenge!!  Congratulations to the Fishie Savers Team.  LMS also received the Award for Most Industrious Presentation. Congratulation Team Ocean Protectors
