On Thursday, 20 April, two members of the Wheatley School’s Brainstormers academic quiz bowl team, Rahul Ajmera and Patrick Brady, traveled to Arlington, Virginia to compete in the National History Bee and Bowl National Tournament held at the Crystal Gateway Marriott Hotel. They were accompanied by the faculty advisor, Joseph Crotty.
On Friday morning, Rahul Ajmera participated in six rounds of the U.S. History Bee (individual competition). In the U.S. History Bee, Rahul competed against junior varsity students from across the United States, making The Wheatley School proud with his perseverance in a national competition. Later that afternoon Rahul and Patrick competed in two rounds of the U.S. Geography Olympiad (test) competition. At the current moment, results have not been published for the examinations. Rahul and Patrick are young members of The Wheatley School’s Brainstormers Club. In competing in a national tournament they have brought achievement and standing to our academic quiz bowl organization.
