Rhinelander - Do you know where Tierra del Fuego is?

Or what state the city of Bozeman is in?

Those were some of the questions fourth and fifth graders faced at Friday's Geography Bee at Central School in Rhinelander.

Topics ranged from U.S. geography to places on the world map. "Some of them were really easy, but the last one, that was the hardest one. The answer I had in mind, but I actually didn't think was anywhere near there, I was thinking of Peru," bee winner Karston LaDean said.

LaDean will now have to take a written geography test.

If he scores well enough, he'll advance to the state Geography Bee later this winter.
