The National History Bee held its Regional Bee for Upstate New York at Bethlehem Middle School Thursday, Jan. 26. 

Representatives from middle schools all over upstate New York competed for a chance to win a spot at the National Championships in Washington, D.C.  BCMS’s own Eric Wolfsberg (left) was the overall winner, and BCMS student Justin Cohen placed third. 

Eric will be representing Upstate New York in the National History Bee, which will be televised on History Channel in May, and has an opportunity to win $50,000 in scholarship money.
