Congratulations to Trevyn Zobell (7th Grade), the winner of the 2011 Spanish Fork Jr. High Spelling Bee. Second place went to Alyson Jardine, and Maleah Cook and Natalie Stutz tied for third place. Thirteen students participated in the bee which continued for 25 rounds. Although students were given spelling lists of words to study months ago, some words were new to the students. Do you know the meaning of nebulosity, lugubrious, crepuscular, or tenebrific? Would you be able to spell them? Congratulations to all participants and winners.

A big thanks to Mrs. Chris Thompson who organized the spelling bee, Mr. David Huff the pronouncer, Georgette Rowley and Patti Meuter the judges, and especially the participants who worked so hard to compete in this year’s spelling bee.
