Spell-off Winners

** Grades 5th through 8th enter in the “Spell-off” only when they have won 1st through 4th place within their own grade.  The 1st through 4th place winners (5th through 8th grade) compete as one group. The Spelling Master uses random spelling words from 5th through 8th to determine the winners. CONGRATULATIONS! Amaka Okafor won 1st place, Katherine Williams 2nd place, and Michael Tucker 4th place!  They are all eligible to compete at the ACSI Regionals in Dallas, TX.

** Los grados 5º al 8º entran a la competencia de “Spell-Off” sólo cuando hayan ganado 1º a 4º lugar dentro de su propio grado. Los ganadores del primero a cuarto lugar (5º a 8º grado) compiten entre un grupo. El Juez designado utiliza palabras al azar del 5º a 8º para determinar los ganadores. ¡Felicitaciones! ¡Amaka Okafor ganó el 1er lugar, Katherine Williams 2º lugar y Michael Tucker 4º lugar! Todos califican para competir en las Regionales de ACSI en Dallas, TX.
