Two W.T. Clarke Middle School eighth-graders competed in the National History Bee Finals, receiving high honors.  

According to its website, the National History Bee is an academic competition for elementary and middle school students that tests their knowledge of a wide range of historical topics. Divided into three stages, students first complete an online qualifying exam. The top scorers on that exam then compete in the regional finals, and the top finishers in the regional competition advance to the national finals, vying for the title of National History Bee Champion.

Within the competition, Ankit Sayed placed among the top 16 entrants, ranking 12th in the nation, and Arjun Panickssery ranked among the top 64, placing 40th in the nation.
     
The district congratulates Ankit and Arjun on their success in the finals.
