Spelling Bee champ heads to Washington, D.C

Eric Errampallii, an 8th grader at Bourbonnais Upper Grade School, is the winner of the area-wide spelling bee co-sponsored by the I-KAN Regional Office of Education and The Daily Journal.

Twenty-one students from schools throughout Kankakee and Iroquois counties competed in the event which was held February 24 at Bradley Bourbonnais Community High School. Eric will represent the area at the Scripps National Spelling Bee this May in Washington, DC.   The winning word was, “pediment.”

Finishing in second place was Connor Boudreau, an 8th grader at Maternity BVM School; and in third place, Megan Chesebro, an 8th grader at Lorenzo Smith School.  It was a dramatic fight to the finish – lasting an entire 24 rounds

Will Rezba, retired speech and English teacher from Herscher High School, was the pronouncer.  Judges were Frank Petkunas, Iroquois-Kankakee Assistant Regional Superintendent, Debora Monk, Regional Board of Schools Trustee member, and Ed Brown, Regional Board of Schools Trustee member.
