Second place speller Cadi Heaton, 7th grader from Mont Harmon Middle School, gave Luke a run for his money as they went head to head for 4 rounds.  Cadi misspelled “irritability.” At this point Luke correctly spelled “posterity”, and finally the championship word “caboodle.”
Jaivery Pitchforth from San Rafael Middle School, returning for her second year to the regional bee, had a great showing with a 3rd place finish.
Sponsored by the Southeast Education Service Center, this year’s Region Bee was held at Grand County High School.  Thanks to Jessie Magleby from Grand County Public Library, who was this year’s pronouncer. Johnna Boyack and JoLynn Torgerson served as judges.
