Tavo González (center) is the winner of Truckee Elementary’s inaugural spelling bee.
Thirty fourth and fifth-grade contestants vied for the prize by spelling such words as pediatrician, consternation, antipathy, vivacious and lanai. Ciara Wing and Lucian Mahan are the second and third place winners, respectively. Rounding out the top five (but not pictured) are Sabrina Achiro and Cole Jacobson.
Congratulations to all of the participants!
