Fulton Science Academy High School History Academic Team Will Compete at the National

On March 18, two members of the FSA High School History Academic Team traveled to Newnan High School to compete in the 2017 Georgia State Championship History Bee and Bowl. Qualifying tests for the US Geography Olympiad and the US History Bowl were given at this event as well.

FSA team members, Sanjeev U. and Chloe R. participated. Sanjeev placed 2nd by taking the US Geography Olympiad Qualifying Test and is qualified to participate at nationals. Chloe took the US history qualifying test and her score qualifies her for competing in that event at nationals. As a team, they finished 3rd in the Junior Varsity Division of the History Bowl. This qualifies them to participate in the National History Bowl in Washington, D.C., April 21-23.

Congratulations to these hard-working, dedicated history students. As you will see below, lots of preparation and fast fingers can often mean the difference in results. Our new History Academic Team formed in January and students are already very competitive in the state level competition. They and other team mates will now be preparing for the national competition, so be sure and wish them good luck.
