Alexis and second place winner, María del Sol Nuñez Peña, a fifth grader from Chaparral Elementary School in the Gadsden Independent School District, battled it out for 4 rounds before María misspelled náyade. Alexis then stepped up to the microphone and very confidently spelled that word and then correctly spelled bórax to win the competition.
The third place winner was Savannah Higgins, an eighth grader from West Las Vegas Middle School (West Las Vegas Schools), in fourth place was Giovana Rodriguez, an eighth grader from Tibbetts Middle School (Famington Municipal Schools) and rounding out the top 5 was sixth grader Kenia Portillo, from La Acadmia Dolores Huerta in Las Cruces.
All five are now eligible to compete in the Fifth Annual Santillana, USA National Spanish Spelling Bee which will be held on Saturday, July 18, 2015 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.
