Students win spelling contest
Two Hood River County students will advance to state following the Hood River County School District Spelling Contest, held May 20.
Dylan Smith, a Westside fifth grader, and Roberto Nunez, a Hood River Middle School seventh grader, will represent the county at the State Spelling contest in September at the State Fair.
Emma Spaulding, a Wy’east eighth grader, took second in the middle school division. In second and third in the elementary division (kindergarten through fifth grade) were Joshua Drake, fourth grader at Cascade Locks, and Eliot Bowie, fifth grader at Parkdale.
Roberto and Lilia Nunez donated books for all finalists and $50 prizes to the first-place finishers.
“The words were very difficult and the students did very well,” said Marcia LaDuke, assistant superintendent.
Roberto Nunez won with the words “scintilla” and “dexterously,” while Dylan Smith prevailed with words such as “trafficking” and “mauve.”
