BCS students participate in Community Spelling Bee

LUDINGTON - Tension was high on Tuesday, April 5 in the Ludington High School Auditorium as participants filed in for the 14th Annual Community Spelling Bee sponsored by the Ludington Daily News. Seventy students representing 10 schools competed to be the representative from our area to attend the National Spelling Bee in

Washington D.C.

The Spelling Bee is designed to help students improve their spelling, increase vocabulary skills, develop correct English usage, and contribute to student’s growth as individuals and competitors.

Eight students from Baldwin participated in the nerve-wracking event. One of our spellers, sixth grader Deondra McDonald, placed 6th in the event! After misspelling alleviate, Deondra was

eliminated.

Mitchell Lange, a seventh grader from Mason County Central won the spelling bee for the second year. He and a family member will enjoy a full expense paid trip to Washington D.C. to compete in the National Spelling Bee.

We would like to congratulate our representatives for a job well done! Local coordinators for the event were Mrs. VanBergen and

Mr. Graetz.
