John Boeger and Jocelyn Kishore, Colusa County’s top elementary school spellers, will represent Colusa County on Saturday, April 20, 2013, in the California State Elementary Spelling

Championship.
    John, a 6th grade student at Egling Middle School, took top honors, and Jocelyn, a 5th grade student at Williams Upper Elementary School, was runner-up in the Colusa County Elementary Spelling Championship.

    The 2013 Colusa County competition was the third for John, but the first for all of the other 29 competitors.  Colusa County Superintendent of Schools Kay Spurgeon and Administrative Assistant Tina Maxwell moderated and judged the competition that advances John and Jocelyn to the State event.  In addition to Superintendent Spurgeon, an audience including family, friends, teachers, and principals was on hand to support the competitors.  At the end of the fast-paced event, “amphibious” was finally Jocelyn’s undoing, while John took the first place title by correctly spelling “parliamentary”.
  

 As runner up in 2011 and winner in 2012 of the Colusa County competitions, expectations are high for John’s third trip to the annual state contest held in Stockton.  All 58 counties in California are eligible to send two spellers to the state competition, hosted by the San Joaquin County Office of Education.  The public is invited to attend the state event at the Wentworth Education Center, 2707 Transworld Drive in Stockton.  For further information, contact Tina Maxwell at 458-0350, ext. 10354, or tmaxwell@ccoe.net.P
