Goff History Bee 1Seventh grader Justin Sapienza and eighth grader Joseph Vitali were crowned co-champions of Goff Middle School’s inaugural History Bee on December 23 in front of a packed gymnasium. They were among 15 contestants who answered questions about U.S. and world history.

The students qualified by scoring the highest on a school-wide preliminary quiz.

After a double elimination round, the four finalists each answered the same three questions – name the presidents on Mount Rushmore, name the five most populated cities in the U.S., and name the seven New Wonders of the World – receiving one point for each correct response.

The History Bee was organized by social studies teachers Michael Barnes and Patricia Farnan. Congratulations to all of the participants!
