SEDC’s 5th Annual Regional Spelling Bee was held on March 27, 2023 at 11 am at the Iron County School District Office. The competition was fierce this year, and many of the 12 spellers from Millard, Beaver, Iron and Washington counties remained deep into the competition. Our champion speller for the SEDC region this year, Vince Moline from Washington School District, correctly spelled “governance” to claim the title of Champion Speller for the Year! Here is our top 3, and their final word of the competition:
