Congratulations News Quiz Winner!

Congratulations to Isabelle Hale, a 7th-grade student at New Haven Middle School, for winning this week’s News Quiz. Isabelle wins a $15 gift card to Imo’s Pizza in Washington and Union, our sponsor for this week’s Missourian In Education News Quiz, based on news in the April 14-15 weekend issue of The Missourian.

Here are the answers to this week’s quiz:

How many trips must a hive of honeybees make to gather enough nectar to make one pound of honey?

According to the Amazing Soil Newspaper In Education feature, a hive of honeybees make about 10 million trips to gather enough nectar to make one pound of honey.

If your school’s spelling bee champion is featured in the paper, who will represent your school at The Bee, The Missourian’s regional spelling competition, on Saturday?

Answers will vary.

Why was the Washington Lady Jay’s win at last weekend’s track meet especially rewarding for their coach, Michael Olszowka?

The Union track meet was renamed for his father, Don Olszowka, who coached at Union for 22 years and is still involved with the program.

Thanks for taking the News Quiz last week! Just TWO weeks of the News Quiz remain this school year! Enter your answers by the end of the day Friday for a chance to win a $15 gift card from Imo's Pizza in Washington and Union!
