League City, TX – The Clear Creek Independent School District has crowned its new Spelling Bee Champion. Seabrook Intermediate sixth grade student Alli DeVillier took home the first-place trophy after 17 tough rounds at the CCISD Spelling Bee on Saturday, February 8, 2020.

Out of 33 total elementary and intermediate students, DeVillier came out on top after spelling the words “rhubarb” and “audacious” correctly.

“I worked really hard, so it feels amazing to win this,” DeVillier said.

Roger Zhen, a fourth grader from Brookwood Elementary, came in second place.

DeVillier will now move on to the Houston Public Media Spelling Bee on February 29, 2020. In May 2020, the top two spellers will advance to the Scripps National Spelling Bee, the nation’s long-standing educational competition since 1925.
