“I’m grateful to the parents of our students for suggesting we compete in the spelling bee,” said Sharon Alexander, Bednarcik principal. “Our parents advocated, and we listened. We started participating again last year after a long absence.” In 2014, Bednarcik eighth-grader Julia Grove won third place in the regional competition.
The regional spelling bee was held at the Morris Community High School Auditorium on February 28. Nadkarni placed first, just ahead of Cameron Cimino of Minooka Junior High School, after spelling more than 200 words correctly during 33 rounds of competition.
