Posted on: February 17, 2019
Spelling Bee

The Southwest Local School District is "Proud, P-R-O-U-D, Proud" to announce that we have 2 students who qualified to compete in the WCPO 9 On Your Side Regional Spelling Bee on March 16, 2019 at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy. They are Elijah Snyder from Harrison Elementary and Avery Dennis from Crosby Elementary. 

"To win the spelling bee, it’s just...It’s great to have an opportunity like this. It’s just amazing...I feel proud of how far I've gotten, and It’s just...I feel just proud!", says Snyder.  "There are other words like amazing and great to describe and explain this... but I can only feel proud".

Each school champion takes an online spelling / vocabulary test by the end of January to try and qualify for the WCPO 9 On Your Side Regional Spelling Bee. Regional champions compete at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.

When asked about moving on to the Regional Bee, Snyder says, "I have already made it this far. If I lose, at least I got this far...But I'm nervous yet excited. Thank you for the opportunity again".
