Holmes Junior High School student Sam Goidell will compete in the 2013 California National Geographic Bee in Sacramento on Friday, April 5.

In order to reach the competition, Sam won his school’s geographic bee and then took a qualifying test that was submitted to the National Geographic Society.

Sam, an eighth-grader, also competed in the state competition last year and finished tied for sixth place. The bee features students in grades 4-8, with the state winner heading to the Washington, D.C., for the national finals.

Emma-Shane Cowan, a student at Harper Junior High School in Davis, was selected recently to participate in the 2013 Miss Teen Sacramento/Stockton pageant competition, which will take place Sunday, April 7, in Sacramento.

Emma, a Woodland resident, will compete in the Miss Jr. Teen division, one of four divisions that will feature girls and teens ages 7-19 competing in modeling routines, which include casual wear and formal wear. Emma also will show off her personality and interviewing skills while interviewing with a judging panel.

The winner of the pageant will represent the Sacramento region at a national competition in Orlando, Fla. Emma is sponsored by The Gifted Penguin in Woodland, and additional sponsors are being sought. For more information, call 877-403-6678.

The Davis High School academic decathlon team finished another successful year, once again capping the season with a trip to the California Academic Decathlon in Sacramento. The team, representing Yolo County, competed in the state-level competition March 15-16, with student Rami Rashmawi being named Davis High’s highest-scoring student and 12th highest-scoring in the state overall.

“Let the Battle Begin!” was the cry heard in the multipurpose room at Patwin Elementary School on March 14 as 26 groups of third- and fourth-graders prepared to face off during an intense Battle of the Books. For the previous few weeks, the students had been reading the seven books chosen by school librarian Wendy Chason. After the nearly hourlong “battle,” three groups were declared winners.

Winning the ultimate prize — a pizza party in the library — were Austin Thornburgh, Jack Stilling, Nick Kennedy, Garret Milner, Lucas Seban, Joey Kunkel, Itai Kalman, Hwanhee Cho, Olivia Price, Dahlia Kraus, Sophie Russell and Josie Beoshanz.

Battle judges included parents, retired school librarians and former Patwin students. The Battle of the Books for fifth- and sixth-grade students is scheduled to take place in early May.
