Congratulations to District 140’s newest Spelling Bee Champion, Adnan E., a seventh-grader from Prairie View Middle School who clinched victory by correctly spelling “jeopardy.” Fouth-grader Chehada Q. from Fernway Park Elementary School came in a close second. Third-place honors went to Bannes Elementary's fifth-grader Cody H.

Adnan will represent D140 in the 14th Annual Suburban Cook County ISC Scripps Spelling Bee at Southland Preparatory Charter High School in Richton Park on Wednesday, March 6. 

“All of our competitors should be congratulated for their hard work and dedication,” said GATE Resource Teacher Nicole Collins. “They each did a wonderful job representing their home school.”

Competing in the spell-off were the top two building-level representatives from each of the District’s seven schools - 14 competitors from grades four through eight. The competition was coordinated by D140 GATE teachers Nicole Collins and Kate Robinson. 

Runners-up included: Maddie P. from Bannes Elementary; Noah A. from Fernway Park Elementary; Daniel R. and Gionni V. from Keller Elementary; Allen M. and Layla S. from McAuliffe Elementary; Matthew S. and Hamza S. from Millennium Elementary; Tyler D. and Jimmy H. from Grissom Middle School and Dominic R. from Prairie View Middle School. 

Congratulations to all!
