Nine fifth grade students competed at Castle Heights’ Constitution Bee on Monday morning. Students were given the questions on Sept. 17 (Constitution Day) to study for the competition. Qualifying rounds were done in class before the actual bee.
“I’m very proud of all of our kids,” said Chris Winfree, the school’s principal. “They worked really hard to prepare for this to know and understand the constitution. As a former history teacher, I think it’s great that we have students as young as fifth grade who are learning the Constitution and learning to understand what role it plays in our lives today.”
Linnea Nelson was awarded first place along with $75, Kyler Gundersen took second, winning $50, and third place went to Jenna Richards, who received $25.
The judges for the bee were members of the Price Lions Club, including Leonard Miller, Karl Wood, Bill Engle and Blake Allen, a fifth grade teacher at Castle Heights Elementary.
