Isabella Neubauer, eighth grader at The Georgetown School of Arts and Sciences, will be participating in the National History Bee in Atlanta, June 7-9. Neubauer was chosen as one of ten finalists at the Regional Bee in Charlotte, N.C. on Monday. In order to qualify to participate in the regional competition Neubauer had to pass a rigorous 50-question test. She then completed three rounds of a Jeopardy-style competition. Questions focused on all areas of world and U.S. history from prehistoric times up to 2011. Almost 100 students from the Carolinas participated in the regional competition. Neubauer was the only female student among the finalists. She is the daughter of Dr. Scott Neubauer and Dr. Michelle Neubauer who teaches Chemistry, Biology, Geography and Environmental Science at The Georgetown School.
