Iowa Knights of Columbus
2013 Spelling Champions
The 2013 Knights of Columbus State Spelling Bee was held on Sunday, March 3, at St. Cecilia Church and School, in Ames, Iowa. To qualify for the State Spelling Bee, each of these 4th through 7th grade students finished in first or second place in their local spelling bee and in first or second place in one of seven regional spelling bees held around Iowa. Each of the grade levels advanced to more difficult word lists before finally determining their respective champions. And three of the four competitions lasted for over two hours before eliminating their last contenders.
