District Spelling Bee ParticipantsThe 7th annual District Spelling Bee took place on January 11th at Central Middle School. Two finalists (the 1st place winner and the runner-up) represented each school.

Brian Paladin and Luke Zakowski from Fierke; Gavin Hemminger and Celia Lindokken from Fulton; Nolan Kaczmarek and Marcel Sporn from Kruse; Adam Higens and Carter Leshock from Memorial; and Hope Samuelson and Maksym Sierak from Central.

The bee began promptly at 6 p.m. with families, the District Board of Education president, District superintendent, principals and teachers silently cheering on the students from the audience.
 
The competitors went a record thirty-two rounds with Gavin Hemminger and Maksym Sierak in the final round. With the championship word, ‘hygiene’,  Maksym was declared the District Spelling Bee Winner. This is the second year Maksym will go on to represent District 146 in the South Cook ISC Scripps Spelling Bee.

The South Cook competition is on Monday, February 5, 2018, at Southland Preparatory Charter High School located at 4601 Sauk Trail in Richton Park.
