On May 16, 2018, 19 pupils (5th grade) from 10 Šiauliai schools participated in the annual “Spelling Bee” competition. The purpose of this competition is to deepen students’ knowledge of the English language, to expand the vocabulary, to improve skills of listening, speaking, and to formulate the correct usage of the language.
This year the winner of the “Spelling Bee” became Emilija Liutikaitė from Šiauliai Medelynas progymnasium (teacher Inga Balčiūnienė). She got a 1st place diploma and a special prize of the American Corner – a mug and 8 GB USB flash drive. However, the American Corner congratulates every participant and seeks that everyone is awarded, so all the contestants also got certificates for participation and prizes – bags and pens with the AC logo.
Organizers: American Corner, Šiauliai “Rasa” progymnasium, Šiauliai Municipality Education Center.
Sponsor: U.S. Embassy in Lithuania, Vilnius.
