The school champions, including Cameron, will take a qualifying test: up to 100 of the top scorers on that test in each state will then be eligible to compete in their state Bee on March 31, 2017. Cameron did qualify and will be representing Loup City at the State Bee.


The 10 finalists were: Liam Heil, Cameron Russell, Randii Reikofski, Ava Hart, Dylan Hull, Luke Heil, Ethan Krzycki, Clayton Dethlefs, Logan Gregory and Chase Steib. The results were: First Place- Cameron Russell, Second Place- Luke Heil and 3rd Place- Dylan Hull.


Paul Henry served as the moderator - asked the questions and Kim Henry was the scorekeeper/timer. Blake Dahlberg presented the certificates to all participants and the winning medal to Cameron.
