Send me to the National History Bee

Hello! My name is Dylan Pataky. I am a student at Pershing Middle School in San Diego, California. I recently went to the Regional Round of competition for the National History Bee and I qualified to go to Atlanta, Georgia for the National History Bee Finals!  I placed in the top 8 for the Southwest Region of the United States out of hundreds of other contestants. I am trying to raise money for airfare, hotel costs and the entry fee for the National History Bee in Atlanta, Georgia.  It takes place on June 1st and 2nd, 2018.  The entry fee is due by May 12th and the airfare and lodging will only increase the longer we wait. This is a very exciting opportunity for me to represent my school, my city, my state, and the south-western region of the United States. I have never been to Atlanta, Georgia and I am excited for the chance to explore a new city and soak in new culture. Anything that you could give me to reach this goal would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support and please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I mentally prepare for the challenge ahead.
