The 31st Annual Jane M. Stitzer Spelling Bee was held at Dallas Middle School on Jan. 3. Twenty-eight contestants earned the right to compete by winning a preliminary Spelling Bee in English class.

Thomas Marsola, a seventh-grader from Mrs. Fisher's homeroom, clinched the winning position by correctly spelling the word gelato.

He will move on to compete in The Times Leader/Scripps NEPA Regional Spelling Bee set for 1 p.m. on March 3 at The Woodlands Inn and Resort in Plains Township. Sixth-grader Lindsey Jorda from Mr. Barbose's homeroom was runner-up.
