Washington Students Compete in Spelling Bee Print

On Friday, Aug. 14th, two students from Washington competed in the Iowa State Fair Spelling Bee held in the Penningroth Media Center on the fair grounds in Des Moines. The competition abides by the official rules in the National Spelling Bee held annually by the Scripps-Howard Newspapers and is meant to show children that learning fundamentals, such as spelling, can be fun. Drew, a current 2nd grader, and Kyleigh, a current 6th grader represented the Washington schools very well and did an outstanding job.
