2nd Centro Spelling Bee

The 2nd Centro Spelling Bee of the Rotary Club of Sta. Rosa Centro was held on February 27, 2015 at the 4th Floor of the Municipal Hall of Sta. Rosa City. This forms part of the club’s thrusts towards Literacy and the Youth, both very important areas of focus of Rotary International. A total of 22 schools sent their best spellers to compete; with 15 grade school contestants and 14 high school contestants. With their respective coaches, teachers, parents, and friends, the students reported to the contest venue as early as 7:30 a.m.


For both the elementary and high school levels, the contestants started off with an easy round of 15 words, after which the contestants were trimmed down to eight. Next was the difficult round with 12 words wherein four contestants emerged at the finalists. In the championship round, the four finalists of each level were asked to verbally spell words one by one and the last one standing was declared winner. After a tussle of wits, a champion was proclaimed, as follows:
