Geography Decathlon

Geography Decathlon - The Tifton Optimist Club and the Tift County Foundation for Educational Excellence co-sponsored the annual Geography Decathlon for local high school students on Tuesday night, Nov 15, at the Tifton-Tift County Public Library. This academic competition requires students to take a written qualifying exam testing their knowledge in 10 categories of geography. The 12 students achieving the highest exam scores then compete in a quiz bowl-style competition for monetary scholarship prizes. This year's winners and their teachers are: Coach Jon Koran, Wyatt Thompson (2nd Place), and Ethan McBrayer (1st Place), all from Tiftarea Academy; and Jake Moore (3rd Place) and Dr. Shelley Fandel from Tift County High School.
