Newaygo County Regional Educational Service Agency (NC RESA) hosted the 2023 County Spelling Bee on March 1 with 15 district-level winners and runners-up (grades 4 through 8) competing at the county level. Congratulations to Sanskriti Parihar from Fremont Daisy Brook, who was the overall winner by correctly spelling the word sunflower in Round 17. We also extend congratulations to Jax Stariha who was the runner-up. Jax attends Fremont Middle School. Sanskriti will now advance to The Greater Grand Rapids Spelling Bee on Tuesday, March 28 in Grand Rapids.
These students are commended for their determination in preparing for the different levels of competition at their local school District Bee, Newaygo County RESA County Bee, and The Greater Grand Rapids Bee. The winner from The Greater Grand Rapids Bee will have the opportunity to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
