Our St. Johns Eagles did very well at the contest. We took a number of individual trophies which included the following:

•Joshua Burmeister – 1st Place for grades 5-6

•Megan Schultz – 2nd Place for grades 7-8

•Nicole Schultz – 3rd Place for grades 3-4

Team awards went to Winona – 3rd Place, Silo – 2nd Place, and St. Johns, Wykoff – 1st Place. We commend the Eagles for the exemplary job of using their God-given spelling abilities. Congratulations!

This is the 4th year of taking 1st place at the spelling bee, with wins in 2010, 2012, 2013, and now in 2014.
