Humble ISD Spelling Bee Winners recognized
Each year Humble ISD hosts a spelling bee for grades 3-8. Students first participate at a campus level bee, and winners move on to the district level competition.
Spelling, however, is only a portion of what these students study. They also learn words’ origins, parts of speech and definitions.
The competition at the district level spelling bee this year was intense. It lasted a total of 44 rounds (five hours!) before Ian Robertson from Creekwood Middle School was named the 2018 Humble ISD Spelling Bee Champion. Joshua Chacko from Woodcreek Middle School is the 2018 Humble ISD Spelling Bee Runner Up.
As the district champion, Ian is set to compete in the city-wide spelling be at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at Baylor College of Medicine Academy at James D. Ryan Middle School. It will be broadcast on PBS at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 14. In the event Ian is unable to compete for any reason, Joshua will represent Humble ISD in the city-wide spelling bee.
