TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Local students put their knowledge on display Wednesday night.
The Kiwanis Club of Terre Haute held the annual Geography Quiz Bowl.
It's the 29th year for the competition.
Middle school teams from around Indiana and Illinois competed.
News 10's very own Kevin Orpurt was the quizmaster.
Organizers say the competition highlights everything students learn throughout their school year.
"This event helps spur our young people on to take geography a little more seriously. Our world is shrinking all of the time. This is truly a global economy. A global population. We need to be able to know who our neighbors are," John Lentz said.
Woodrow Wilson Middle School took first place with Otter Creek Middle taking home second place and Honey Creek Middle School winning third place.
