News Release
Tuesday, February 05, 2019

League City, Texas – Eighth grader Christopher Jin from League City Intermediate took home the first-place trophy for the Clear Creek ISD Spelling Bee held at Mossman Elementary on February 2, 2019.

Jin was the last student standing after 29 tough rounds of competition against 33 other elementary and intermediate spellers from across the District. His winning word was “fiefdom.” The runner up was fifth grader Sofia Phuong of Armand Bayou Elementary.

The next round of competition for Jin will be at the Houston Public Media Spelling Bee which will be televised live on March 23, 2019. From there, the top two spellers will advance to the Scripps National Spelling Bee, the nation’s long-standing educational competition since 1925. The two National Spelling Bee qualifiers earn an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. to represent Houston in May 2019.
