The 2018 Berkshire District Spelling Bee is in the books! bee

Second-time champion, fifth-grader Gavin Foye, won the annual spelling bee with the word 'succulent' after several rounds of spelling taking contestants well into the eighth grade Scripps National Spelling Bee word list. Runner-up is fellow fifth-grader, Jordan Price with seventh-grader, Bleu Ceroky taking third amongst the group of 4th-8th graders. 

All of the contestants from Burton Elementary, Ledgemont Elementary and Berkshire Middle were commendable as they stood in front of a packed room full of family, teachers, and administrators to spell their hearts out. It takes a lot of courage to participate and these students showed real grit. 

Gavin Foye will go on to represent Berkshire Local School District at the Geauga County Spelling Bee on February 15, 2018. Best of luck to him in the next stage of competition and job well done to all of the 2018 spelling bee participants.
