Two W.T. Clarke Middle School students have advanced to the National History Bee Finals, which will be held June 1-4 in Atlanta, Georgia. 

Seventh-grader James Griesing and eighth-grader Nick Spano are moving on to nationals after competing in the New York Regional Finals of the National History Bee. They will participate in the competitions for their respective age divisions, answering 25 questions in each of four preliminary buzzer rounds and taking a written exam consisting of 40 multiple choice questions about U.S. and global history. 

The 64 highest ranked students in each division will advance to the championship buzzer round on the last day of the competition, where one student in each division will earn the title of National History Bee Grand Champion. 

The district wishes James and Nick much success as they compete at finals.
