Waking up at 4:30 in the morning paid off as Rizwan, a 6th grader at Michigan Math and Science Academy won 3rd place in the spelling bee. Once again we arrived in Chicago, at the University of Illinois-Chicago, to compete with over 30 schools in Concept’s Spelling Bee. This is an annual event. We have not placed the last two years. This win is special as we bring home a title, to a school that has made a name for itself among spelling bee champions.
Great Job to our other competitors: Jaeda Young-3, Amaree Morgan-4, Gio-Michael Bagtas-5, Elias Kashat-7 and Ridwan Hayder-8.
