So the Peace Corps Kosovo spelling bee is something that I believe someone in the K1 group began (although I could be wrong, do not quote me on that). In any case it is being continued this year and today my school held ours, after a fair deal or organizing from me and my counterpart (seen above). My students were excited and nervous and frankly they astounded me with how well they’d studied and how great they did. Above you can see my two wonderful judges, my sitemate Emily and a community development volunteer in Prizren, Ingrid, keeping things unironically fair and balanced (Plus my counterpart in the background!). Here are the final ten who will be continuing on to the regional bee in February:
Including one 7th grader, seen on the left! I’m proud of all of them but especially her.
