spelling bee

Eagle Ridge student is new district spelling champ

Yana Khetiya practiced an hour a day for a couple of weeks to prepare for the 33rd annual Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 Spelling Bee on Dec. 5.

It paid off! The Eagle Ridge Middle School eighth grader emerged as the champion from among the 28 best spellers from around the district and took home the big trophy. The event went about 15 rounds with “competition" as the winning word.  

District 191 spelling bee will be Dec. 5

The best spellers in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 will participate in the 33rd annual district spelling championship bee at 7 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 5, in the Mraz Center for the Performing Arts at Burnsville High School, 600 E. Highway 13.

Students in grades five through eight competed in their school spelling bees this fall to determine who would move on to the district bee.
