Students from schools in the Austin-North Lawndale Network recently competed in a spelling bee. First, each school in the network held individual spelling bees in order to determine the representatives for each grade band, one student from K-3 and one student from 4-8. Then, two spelling bees (for K-3 and 4-8)  were held on Monday, May 21, 2012, at the 1900 N. Austin Building to determine the two winners.
