Congratulations to Mario Bacanowa, the Cordova Gardens 2013-2014, Spelling Bee champion. Mario faced stiff competition and was almost bounced from the challenge when he mis-spelled a word, however he received a reprieve when his challengers also missed a word in the same round. Great work by all 43 initial participants and the 22 spellers who made the oral version of the Spelling Bee.
