We held our Unalakleet Spelling Bee Monday Jan. 23. We had ten students compete, with a robust audience present! The competition was stiff, and the you could hear a pin drop in the room. Raucous applause erupted in the room as we found our school champion, 4th grader Doreen Cooper. Runner up was fellow 4th grader, Lily Lausten-Katongan. We had a very tight finish for third; a lengthy tiebreaker round was needed to decide our third place finisher. In the end, 4th grader Keane Wilson rose to the occasion and placed third. We are proud to send Doreen, Lily, and Keane to Elim for the District Bee in February. We wish them the best of luck!
