Marana spelling bee

Posted: Updated:

MARANA, Ariz. -- Take a deep breath, relax and don't faint. That was some advice Marana school kids got Wednesday afternoon at the district spelling bee.

Twenty-eight students from 11 elementary school and two middle schools put their spelling skills to the test against one another.

The top four spellers advanced to the Pima County spelling bee on February 19 at the Arizona School for the Deaf and Blind.
