Four W.T. Clarke Middle School students have qualified for the New York (South) Regional Finals of the National History Bee. 

The school’s qualifiers — seventh-grader Claire Baek and eighth-graders Nicholas Espinosa, James Griesing and Tristan Patel — took an in-class written exam on 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 East Brunswick, New Jersey, on April 17. 

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

The district wishes Claire, Nicholas, James and Tristan much success as they move forward in the competition.
