Terraset Elementary School hosted its 8th annual Spelling Bee on Wednesday in the school’s cafeteria. Fourteen students from grades 3-6 participated. The format followed those used by both the county and national bee programs. Sia Komba, a 4th grader, won in round nine, with the word “manufacture.” Archer Oliver, a sixth grader, was runner-up.
Sia advances to compete against students from all over Fairfax County at the 2014 County Bee in March. The winner of the county contest will advance to the Scripps National Bee in Washington, DC.
“I liked learning new words, and I feel really good about what I did. I’m really excited!” said Sia.
