Making History

W.S. Mount Elementary School sixth-graders Neal Carpino and Matthew Chen have qualified to compete in the National History Bee National Finals being held this June in Chicago.

The students earned a bid to this final level based on their performance at the National History Bee regional competition.

During the final stage of the contest, they will compete for the title of National History Bee Champion as they answer questions about U.S. history and world geography. In addition, Neal and Matthew will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of side events, such as the Great History Hunt, National Citizenship Bee, Pop Culture Challenge, Family Quiz Night and ACE HistoryWorld.
