Twenty-six Buda Elementary School students battled it out in the 2016 BES Spelling Bee. But it wasn’t until the 15th round when fifth grader Zoe Contreras edged out third grader Amari Peterson for the school championship. Contreras won the title by spelling “precursor” and “infuriating” correctly. Contreras advances to the area round, which will be held in 2017.
