Friday, January 20, had 15 Buffalo Ridge Elementary (BRE) fourth- and fifth-grade students feeling the jitters as they participated in the school’s annual spelling bee. The students were chosen from roughly 50 kids who tried out for the bee with a spelling pre-test before school on January 11. After eight spelling rounds and two vocabulary rounds, the final winner was speller number nine, Chance, who will continue on and compete at the Douglas County School District-level spelling bee.
