Templeton students advance in National History Bee competition

Templeton Middle School seventh-graders Sean Durian and Dominic Pino advanced to regional competition of the National History Bee.

New this year, the National History Bee is a competition open to middle and high school students. All Templeton students participated in the Intramural Bee by taking a 80-question, multiple-choice written test that covered U.S., world and modern history topics. Because Durian and Pino had the top two highest school scores, they completed an online competition and qualified to advance to the National History Regional Bee March 15 at Marshall Middle School. From there, the top student advances April 21-22 to national championships in Washington, D.C.
