EMS Students to Compete in National History Bee

EMS seventh grade students Alex Sabelja and Gerard Mazzone were the first and second place winners in the Seventh Grade New York North Regional competition of the National History Bee.  They will now move on to the finals round to be held in Atlanta, Georgia in June.

 

Alex and Gerard also placed first and second in the first Eastchester Annual Matthew DeMarco Memorial Middle School History Bee, which was held in January, 2018.  Both students will be eligible to compete again next year in the Middle School bee that has been established in the memory of Matthew and to promote interest in history, one of Matthew’s passions.

 

Both students have also qualified to participate in the U.S. Geography Olympiad.
