2021 9-12th Grade Spelling Bee Winners

2021 5-8 grade Spelling Bee winners FLINT– The Genesee Intermediate School District (GISD) is excited to announce and congratulate the participants and winners of the 2021 Countywide Spelling Bee. COVID-19 presented some challenges this year, however leaders decided to move forward with the Spelling Bee this month including the schools that were in session. This year, 87 students from schools across Genesee County put their spelling skills to the test.

Each student who placed in the top three of the Regional Spelling Bees received a medal along with a Barnes & Noble gift card. Students who placed in the top three of the Championship Spelling Bee (one for grades 5-8 and another for grades 9-12) each received a plaque and a gift card. First place winners of the championship divisions (5th-8th grades and 9th-12th grades) get to take the traveling trophy back to their school where it will be on display for the next year. 

GISD congratulates all the students who participated in the Countywide Spelling Bee. Below are the names of the top 2021 Countywide Spelling Bee Championship winners followed by those who placed in their division.
