The NJSFWC sponsors an annual spelling bee program, with women’s clubs throughout the state hosting local events. In the Highland district, several women’s clubs organized spelling bees representing thirty schools. They sent their winners to a district spelling bee held in Rockaway on February 2, 2019.
Congratulations to the NJSFWC Highlands District spelling bee winners: first-place winner Sanjana Veggalam, third-place winner Sahaj Bhandari, (both from Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills), and second-place winner Lucas Zablocki, (GFWC Woman’s Club of the Denville – Rockaway Area.)
These three District winners will participate in the State Federation’s Annual State Spelling Bee, to be held Saturday, March 2nd at NJSFWC Headquarters, located on the Douglass campus in New Brunswick. Good luck to all!
It takes a lot of work and volunteer hours to host a successful spelling bee. Thanks to Denville’s Mayor, Tom Andes, Denville’s library director, Siobhan Koch, and NJSFWC Highlands District Vice President, Judy Filippini, who acted as judges, and members of the three women’s clubs (Denville-Rockaway, Parsippany Troy-Hills, and Vernon) who helped organize and support the district spelling bee.
