From left, seventh graders Hayden Virtue and Kealia Haitsuka were the co-winners in this year’s school spelling bee, with Haitsuka correctly spelling “armistice,”and Virtue correctly spelling “tomahawk.” Haitsuka and Virtue now advance to the Hawaii Island District Spelling Bee on Jan. 18, at HPA’s Gates Performing Arts Center.
