Will March 7 be a landmark day for Vacaville’s top elementary-school speller, Notre Dame sixth-grader Ellison Domingo?
Will he be hailed, after probably more than two dozen rounds, as the No. 1 speller at the county bee Monday, when the 40th annual Solano County Elementary School Spelling Bee ends at the Joseph A. Nelson Community Center in Suisun City?
The event, open to students countywide in grades four to six, from either public or private schools, begins at 6 p.m. in the 611 Village Drive center.
The county competition is an oral contest. District staff, school staff, and the contestant’s family are welcome to attend the event, said Ken Scarberry, a spokesman for the bee.
