The results are in for the 15th Annual Fox Valley Spelling Bee on Thursday, October 14, 2010, proceeds for which benefited the Fox Valley Literacy Coalition and adult literacy services.

Congratulations to Lawrence University’s spellers, who took first place amongst 13 teams, and to runner-up ThedaCare.

Peterson, Berk and Cross’s team (Michael Brown, Meghan Hanley, Amy Risseeuw and Heidi Widi) took third place.

The event was a lot of fun, and MC Bill Jartz was funny and entertaining, and a great boost to the event.
