Take a look at last year’s event –

John Whikehart and Yael Ksander took to the Great Grown Up Spelling Bee stage this year to lead our teams through an intense spelling competition.   As always Mr. Whikehart and his side kick did not disappoint the crowd.  Dressed as the the ever pestering Sam-I-Am the duo pronounced words, provided definitions, and created sentences that in his own words “aren’t helpful.”  But the sentences certainly add to the FUN! 

It was a tight competition with four teams surviving seven rounds.  That moved us to a spell down, where teams are given a white board, marker, and eraser.  The pronouncer gives 7 challenging words and the teams have 20 seconds per word to collaborate and write down their best guess.  Congratulations to the FMCCS Dumbbells for spelling 5 of the words correctly and taking the competition in an outright WIN! 

Second place goes to the Ivy Tech Honey Combs and third place goes to the Cook Medical – One Fish, Two Rish, Red Fish, Cook Fish.







The Spirit Award went to Cook Medical
