Pasadena, Eagle Rock Students Best Spellers

October 26, 1989|Luz Villarreal

A Pasadena fourth-grader and an Eagle Rock sixth-grader won in their age groups in the Plaza Pasadena's spelling bee last week.

Liza Anulao, 11, a sixth-grader at St. Dominic's School in Eagle Rock won the fifth- and sixth-grade competition.

Kristina E. VanDusen, 8, a pupil at Longfellow Elementary School, won the third- and fourth-grade spelling bee with the word "chocolate."

Two years ago, Kristina won the first- and second-grade competition, and last year she won second place in the third- and fourth-grade competition, her father said.

More than 200 students from elementary schools in the San Gabriel Valley participated in the three-day event. Winners in the first- and second-grade competition were announced last week.

Each first-place winner received a trophy, certificate and an encyclopedic dictionary set. The spelling bee was sponsored by Encyclopaedia Britannica and Plaza Pasadena.
