Manson School District held its annual Spelling Bee on Feb. 7 at the Manson Elementary School.

Twenty-two students competed from fourth through 8th grades.

The goal for the evening was to find two winners that would advance to the regional competition at 6 p.m., March 21, at Eastmont Junior High School in East Wenatchee.

Our top two spellers going into the championship round were fourth grade student Malachi Sanchez with the winning word "Complexity" and eighth grader Spencer Ward with the winning word "Sufficiently."

Ward won the overall district champion with the winning word "Relentlessly".

Malachi and Spencer spelled off through 21 tough words before finally reaching a winning word.

Superintendent Matt Charlton was the pronouncer and the judges were Don Vanderholm, Manson High School/Middle School Principal; Kayla Helleson, Manson Elementary Counselor; and Fred Miller, Manson School Board President.
