Students age 6 to 13 competed in the Discovery Home-School Spelling Bee.

David Leong did not succumb to the pressure as he spelled that word correctly to win the championship in the Discovery Homeschool Spelling Bee on Jan. 19 at the San Leandro Main Library.  Eight home-schooled students, ages 6 to 13, competed in the bee.

Judah Iwawaki took second place in the bee, and Joshua Huang took third place. The other spellers were Mason Blum, Camden Daly, Erika Hazlett, Gabriel Vergara and Espie Vergara.

Leong will advance to the written phase of the San Francisco Chronicle Spelling Bee. The champion of the Chronicle Bee will advance to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.
