Augustine Wang-Zhao, a soon-to-be 5th grader at Bishop's Peak Elementary School in San Luis Obispo, brought some hardware back from Rome, Italy and the International History Olympiad.

Students from around the world competed in a variety of world history events. Augustine and his family traveled to Rome the last week and a half of July for the competition.

Augustine took 5th place in the elementary division in the International History Bowl.

In the hexathlon, a competition consisting of several history categories, Augustine competed on a team with two other students from California and brought home a silver medal!

Congratulations, Augustine!
