From left are the top three finishers in the Humphrey Middle School Spelling Bee, Andrew Whittington, seventh grade, second place; Simona McDonald, eighth grade, first place, Jorgen Ball, sixth grade, third place.

The VVSD Middle School Spelling Bee was rescheduled twice and ultimately cancelled. In order to determine the District’s representatives at the Will County Spelling Bee, the five middle schools held “spell-offs” among their sixth, seventh and eighth grade champions.

The top spellers were: A. Vito Martinez in Romeoville, eighth-grader Maryam Sohail Warraic; Brooks in Bolingbrook, seventh-grader Sumaiya Idrees; Jane Addams, eighth-grader Nathan Dowuonah, Lukancic, seventh-grader Noah Pulins; Humphrey, eight-grader Simona McDonald.
