Dillsburg Spelling Bee

On May 31st, Dillsburg Elementary School 3rd grade classes held their annual spelling bee. Over 40 students participated in this year's event. The competition was so fierce, there were several tie-breaker rounds and the event had to be extended into 2 days; a first in the spelling bee history! All students received a participation ribbon. The top three were honored at the school awards assembly with a medal and certificate. Colton Strayer from Miss Kopac's class won the bee with the winning word of "territory".
