Probably by the time you read Saturday morning’s paper, Michael Austin, Bulloch County’s 2014 Spelling Bee Champion, will be taking the stage to compete against champions from 17 other counties at the District 8 Spelling Bee at Waycross College. “I think I’ll do well,” the 10-year-old fifth grader said during a lunch break at Mattie Lively Elementary School. “I don’t know what words they’ll call out, but I’ve studied all of them.”
Academic Competitions Highlight Second Semester
Bulloch County Schools has five major academic contests for students during the school year's second semester: The Regional Student Technology Fair kicked off a competition season that will be followed by the Bulloch County Spelling Bee, Penny Sikes Math Tournament, Reginald Dawson Memorial Math Tournament, and the Nan Rushing Write-off. Each event gives students a way to practice the skills they've learned and have a healthy dose of competition. On these days, academics is a spectator sport due to the crowds of parents, family and teachers gathered to support their children and schools.
Three of the five competitions (Technology Fair and Penny Sikes and Reggie Dawson Math Tournaments) are open to the area's private and home-schooled students as well. If your school is ready to put their technology, math and language arts skills to the test, check out these events.
