Teens take part in Geo Challenge at Oxnard College

Geography buffs from Ventura County high schools competed in the 28th Annual High School Geography Competition at Oxnard College on Saturday.

Teens like to call it the Geo Bowl.

They competed asGeo Challenge teams and as individuals.

They took written tests and then joined their teams at tables in the Oxnard College gym.

Together they answered questions asked out loud.

They held up their answers for judges to score.

Volunteer judges included Ventura County Superintendent Stan Mantooth

Some of the questions dealt with foreign countries, others had to do with the geography in their own backyard, such as the Los Padres National Forest and the Santa Monica Mountains.

Tirza Estrada served as geo bowl advisor for the defending champs from Oxnard High.

Estrada said kids have a comradery when it comes to academics outside of school.

” It is really cool because you get to know kids who want to do something extra,” said Estrada.

Oxnard High School came in third, its rival Pacifica High School came in second and Newbury Park High School came in first.

In addition to trophies, Newbury Park High School team members won the opportunity to take a ride on an Aspen Helicopter.
