The 1997 Spelling Bee

This year's spelling bee competition was held at the Scots American Club on January 28, 1997, 50 people participated although only 47 showed up. There were 7 kids from Schuyler School in this event. Even though everyone did a good job, only the last 7 people went to the next Bee which was held February 6, 1997 at Saint Paul's Church in Clifton. 2 out of the 24 kids who were in the District Spelling Bee were from Schuyler School. They were me, Joanna Tarasewicz, and Nader Ibrahim. Although we both were very good, we were not good enough to be in the State Championships which will be held in March. I know everyone had fun and that is all that matters.
