The Concept Schools Spelling Bee was an entertaining and fast paced event for the 3rd through 8th grades.
Featuring attendees from Horizon Academy – Cincinnati :
Elijah Sweatt, Tavian Brookins, Dontonio Brown, and Kerry Huffy.
Staff and Parent volunteers included: Mr. Yilmaz, Mr. Sparks, and Ms. Tanita McKinney.
This bee was an unforgettable experience.
An eclectic group of students faced off in the 3rd -5th grade Bee battling their way through a series of increasingly difficult words. As the dust settled our representatives conquered their way through the competition to fall in rounds 5 (Tavian) and 15 (Elijah).
Following the 3rd-5th grade Bee the 6th – 8th graders confronted an even more demanding series of words. Students were dropping out even more swiftly than the 3-5 Bee but Kerry and Dontonio garnered a respectable 1st and 4th round finish.
HSAC finished 4th overall for Concept School in the 3-5th category, a career best for this institution. In closing the Concept Spelling Bee was an entertainingly delightful experience for all participants and attendees.
