Four W.T. Clarke Middle School students have qualified for the New York Regional National History Bee.

The school’s qualifiers — seventh-grader James Griesing and eighth-graders Andrew Garces, Nick Spano and Roberto Sison — had taken an in-class written exam on both U.S. and global history and were among the top 20 highest scorers in the school. Having excelled on the online exam, which was the next step of the competition, they will now advance to the regional finals, to be held in Cedar Grove, New Jersey, on April 21.

At the regional finals, the students will participate in three rounds of fast-paced and interactive buzzer-format competition against other students in the region to determine who will advance to nationals.

The district wishes James, Andrew, Nick and Roberto much success as they move forward in the competition.
