Submitted By Ray (Remo) Venturin – President & Spelling Bee Co-Chairperson. 

Black Gold Optimist Club of Leduc   (a non-profit youth & community service club)

    The Black Gold Optimist Club of Leduc held their 3rd annual Spelling Bee on Saturday, April 26th in the auditorium of the Leduc Legion.

     A total of eleven Grade 5 students from six Leduc elementary schools, competed in an oral contest to demonstrate their spelling skills.

 It was educational and enjoyable for all in attendance.

    This Bee differs from others in that competitors are eliminated only after a third spelling error. This allows for them to get over any initial nervousness.

    All contestants received framed Participation Certificates, some donated gifts and varying cash prizes according to final placement.

    First, Second and Third Place ribbons were awarded to those finishing in those positions.
