Seventh grade students from the district’s three middle schools competed in the Bloomington Civics Bee Jan. 16 at Civic Plaza. The event was co-hosted by the League of Women Voters and Bloomington Public Schools. 

The top three finishers were Grace Lilla, Oak Grove; Megan Van-Cao, Olson; and Kendall Friesen-Wenger, Valley View. Eleven students competed in the event.

To qualify for the final event, all BPS seventh grade students took a qualifying exam. High scoring students were invited to participate in a Civics Bee at their respective middle school. The four finalists from each middle school were invited to the city-wide Civics Bee.
