Have You Heard the Buzz?

Have you heard the Buzz...about the two spelling bees?

1)  Congratulations to Isabelle Robinson the winner of our 5th Annual Lethbridge Public Library Spelling Mini-Bee! Her winning anticipated championship word was "headache."
     The Mini-Bee was for grades one to three students and took place March 15, 2014.
---------------------------------------------------
2) Congratulations to this year's winner, Mehreen Kabir, the winner of our 2nd annual spelling bee for grades four to seven. After twenty-four rounds, the anticipated championship word was "arthritis."

A big thanks to the Engravers for donating the trophies, and to our volunteer judges for both bees, Kristine Alexander,  Dan Johnson, Lynn Kennedy, and Ian Maclachlan, from the University of Lethbridge, and Bob Cooney from the Lethbridge Public Library Board.
