Lincoln: Iowa State Fair Spelling Bee Print

On August 8, Kyleigh D (5th grader) represented Lincoln Elementary and Washington Community Schools at the Iowa State Fair Spelling Bee in Des Moines. This event is held annually and abides by the official rules of the National Spelling Bee held by the Scripps-Howard Newspapers. Kyleigh competed with approximately 70 other students in this competition and lasted through 4 very difficult rounds before she was eliminated. Thanks, Kyleigh, for representing Washington Schools so well!
