Spelling Bee Champs

Spelling Bee Champs

While most of us rely on Spell Check, these kids simply don't need it! Ian Robertson, Creekwood Middle School seventh-grader, was named district Spelling Bee Champion for the third consecutive year at the annual Humble ISD Spelling Bee. Advika Rapolu from Greentree Elementary is the 2019 Humble ISD Spelling Bee Runner Up. Each year Humble ISD hosts a spelling bee for Grades 3-8. Students first participate at a campus level bee, and winners move on to the district level competition. Spelling is only a portion of what these students study. They also learn words’ origins, parts of speech and definitions. As the district champion, Ian is set to compete in the city-wide spelling bee on Saturday, March 23, 2019, at Baylor College of Medicine Academy at James D. Ryan Middle School. It will be broadcast on PBS at 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 31. In the event Ian is unable to compete for any reason, Advika will represent Humble ISD in the city-wide spelling bee. Congratulations to all!
