The Calloway County Middle School History Bee and Science Bee Teams have qualified for the regional finals sponsored by the International Academic Competitions organization. Calloway entered seventeen students into the Online Regional Qualifying Exam and all seventeen placed high enough to be selected for the next round of competition to be held in Memphis, TN. This next phase consists of the top-scoring students from multiple regions across the United States challenging “head-to-head” against each other in a quick recall formatted competition.
