On April 12, the Delta Center for the Performing Arts was the site of the annual sixth grade spelling bee. Twenty-five of the county’s best sixth grade spellers competed for the honor of top speller. The spelling bee was judged by Pauline Carr, Mary Blake, Helen Groome and Linda Campbell. The students battled each other for 13 rounds before the championship round began. After the dust settled the results of the spelling bee were: Baxter Waltermire, North Fork Community Montessori School, first; Jadeyn Jensen, Hotchkiss K-8, second; Lauren Davey, Delta Middle School, third; Cesar Comacho, Hotchkiss K-8, fourth; Zeron Lawson, Delta Middle School, fifth; and Alyssa Trujillo, Delta Academy of Applied Learning, sixth.
