South Coast Spelling Bee Tradition Goes Virtual
Some South Coast elementary school students were spelling up a storm over the weekend, as a more than five decade old tradition continued in Ventura County. SAGE Publishing and Corwin sponsored the 56th annual Ventura County Spelling Bee. Because of the pandemic, it was a virtual event this year.
This year’s winner was Arth Dalsania, a student at the Camarillo Academy of Progressive Education. The win allows the sixth grader to advance towards a slot in the national finals in Orlando, Florida.
Dalsania won by correctly spelling the word “obumbrate.” In case you are wondering, the word means to overshadow, or to cloud.
