Cedar Park Christian School – Mountlake Terrace student Abigail Mulugeta certainly knows how to spell S-U-C-C-E-S-S … and plenty more, as the eighth grader earned two first place awards last week at an Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) district spelling bee competition.
Mulugeta won both the 8th Grade first place award and an ACSI District Junior High first place award on Jan. 24 at a district bee held at Heritage Christian Academy in Bothell. Mulugeta will now compete in the ACSI Northwest Regional Spelling Bee competition on Feb. 28, to be held at Firm Foundation Christian Church in Battle Ground, Wash. The top four competitors at the regional bee will qualify for the organization’s national competition in Plano, Texas this May.
The spelling bee is one of many student activities and competitions conducted by the ACSI for its 5,900 member institutions worldwide.
