Deb Nicholson, Tinker Duclo and Bob VonAchen solved the Mystery of the Misspelled Word at Spellebration on March 15 at the Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs.

The team of three spellers, sponsored by Colorado Mountain College West Garfield Campus, successfully defended its title as the best spellers in Garfield County. The members correctly spelled the penultimate word, “treen,” and then “opsimath” to win, narrowly beating the team sponsored by Valley View Hospital.

The Best Costumes award went to Martha’s Detective Agency, sponsored by Linda English, and the top fundraiser was Glenwood Springs’ 100 Club and its team The Reddish Herrings.

Spellebration is a joint fundraiser to benefit Literacy Outreach and the Colorado Mountain College learning labs to support the many adult literacy learners in Garfield County. These programs are grateful for the support of the 31 teams of spellers, the event and team sponsors, and the silent auction donors and purchasers.
