Begbie History Contest

This April, almost 30 Crestwood students from grade 9 to 12 participated in the Begbie Society’s Canadian History Contest, an annual competition designed to test students’ knowledge of major historical concepts and events, as well as their critical thinking and essay writing abilities. This contest is written by over 1200 students across the country.

The results arrived back at Crestwood this week, and it is with great pride that the History Department acknowledges the accomplishments of Zachary Brown (Grade 10) and Justin Memar-Markous (Grade 9). Justin, writing the contest for the first time, scored a 92 out of 100, placing him 53rd in the nation. Zach improved greatly on his 81 from last year, scoring a 94 percent, and earning himself the 35th spot in the nation.

Mr. Masters, Mr. Hawkins and the entire social studies department would like to congratulate the boys, and thank all of the Crestwood students who wrote the contest this year.
