ZES holds two spelling bees annually in its second and third grades.
Mimi Bennett, Spelling Bee coordinator, said 38 second-graders competed for the title of Spelling Bee Champ, and 31 competed for the victory in third-grade.
Only one was crowned from each grade.
Second-grade winner Gavin Malden, who correctly spelled 'jelly' for the win, was recognized at last week's school board meeting.
Third-grade winner Hannah Lopez won with the correct spelling of the word 'magician.'
Lopez was also recognized.
Both ZES Spelling Bee winners received certificates of honor for their achievements.
