The first-ever National Catholic School Spanish spelling bee was won by the fourth-grade team from Saint Procopius in Chicago.
The winning spelling answer is the word “Felicidades”, which translates as “congratulations” in Spanish terms.
On Friday, the team bagged their victory and received a trophy and medals for their thrilling win through Zoom. St. Procopius prevailed after being tied with a Texas team in the last match. They have won the first-ever Spanish spelling bee for Catholic Schools nationwide, taking first place.
