District Spelling Bee 2019 Winners and Judges

District Spelling Bee Winners and Judges

The 2019 District Spelling bee was held on January 24th at the Avondale Civic Center. Students who won their School Spelling Bees advanced to this District Spelling Bee. So, all of the participants were already School Champions! Students had to spell many challenging words, some of which many of the adults in the room had never heard of before. The competition level was very high.

The three winners from the District Spelling Bee that will now compete in the Region 5 Maricopa County Spelling Bee are:
Dominique Romero, Wigwam Creek, 6th Grade
Emily Shanafelt, Western Sky, 8th Grade
Paul Zielinkski, Wigwam Creek, 7th Grade
