Congratulations to Knox seventh grader Ethan Blood. Ethan recently won the Knox Spelling Bee and will be representing Knox Junior High at the 36th Annual Capital Region Spelling Bee at Proctors Theatre in Schenectady at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, February 13, 2018. All Capital Region Spelling Bee participants are from grades 4-8.
The champion of the Capital Region Spelling Bee will win an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington D.C. to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in June 2018.
The format of the Spelling Bee will include written spelling and vocabulary testing, in addition to oral spelling. In the event that Ethan is unable to attend the Spelling Bee, alternate Natalie Flint will represent Knox Junior High School.
We wish Ethan the best of luck!
