SW/WC Service Cooperative’s Regional Spelling Bee was held on Tuesday, February 12 at the Redwood Area Community Center in Redwood Falls. Twenty-eight students, who were local winners, competed against each other through a written test and three preliminary oral rounds. The scores for those two events were added together and the 15 students with the top scores advanced to the afternoon’s spell-down. After nineteen intense rounds, Millie Piper of Fulda was declared the champion. Other winners included Alyssa Boynton (Murray County Central Elem. – second place), John Sweetman (Murray County Central Jr. High – third place), Asa Ulferts (Yellow Medicine East Jr. High – fourth place), and Emma Oslund (Ortonville – alternate).
