Elementary School Hosts Blood Drive

give bloodLEXINGTON, Ky. (2/5/13) – Zachary Ross, an eighth-grader at Winburn Middle School, was one of three students in the country to earn a perfect score on the regional qualifying exam for the 2013 National History Bee.
 
Zachary, classmates Thirushan Wignakumar and Sameer Ahmed and sixth-grader Max Bograd all advance to the April 8 regional contest at host Paul Laurence Dunbar High School. They will vie for the opportunity to represent the Lexington Region in the national championship June 1 in Atlanta.
 
This individual academic competition for elementary and middle school students tests knowledge of a wide range of historical topics. It is divided into three stages:
 
• Online regional qualifying exam;
• Buzzer competition at sites across the United States;
• National showdown pitting the 35 regional winners.
 
Winburn was this year’s only participant in Fayette County Public Schools. The four top-scoring students on a preliminary written test at Winburn tackled the online exam, scoring high enough to move on. For more details, contact social studies teacher Michelle Cason at (859) 381-3967.
