WICHITA FALLS, TX (TNN) - In the Burkburnett ISD, the John Tower Elementary School hosted 30 brave third through fifth grade students Thursday, all hoping to be the next spelling bee champion.
Our own Ashley Fitzwater hosted the event, she ways it was easy to tell the students had been studying hard.
Top honors went to fifth grader Daisy Carmosino after she correctly spelled ‘vocational’.
“At first I was scared and I thought I’d get it wrong because I messed up when I said it but this time I got it right and I was happy when I didn’t hear the bell ring,” Carmosino told us.
Second place winner, 4th grader Tiyana Bolar says “I thinks its really good cause I tried to get this and I did.”
Daisy will now go on to compete in the regional spelling be, hosted by News Channel 6, coming up in March.
The winner of that competition will represent the area in Washington DC.
