r On April 13, hundreds of fourth- and fifth-grade students and their parents gathered at Spanish Fork High School for Nebo School District’s first-ever Elementary Keyboarding Championship. Students were selected to represent their schools in the championship based on their remarkable keyboarding skills.

After three rounds of competition, 14 fifth-grade students and 17 fourth-grade students were announced as winners of this year’s championship. The top keyboarder in the fifth grade keyed over 100 words per minute. The top fourth-grade keyboarder keyed over 90 words per minute.

Thanks to the generosity of Nebo Credit Union, a total of $800 was awarded to students. Each first-place winner was awarded a $100 gift card. Second-place winners received a $75 gift card, third-place winners received a $50 gift card, fourth-place winners received a $25 gift card, and places fifth through 16th received a $10 bill. Thanks go to Macey’s Grocery Store for providing water and snacks as well as Spanish Fork High School for allowing use of their computer labs and cafeteria for this great event.

Nebo’srkeyboarding specialists are Randy Bartholomew, Deb Bigler, Kim Clyde, Haley Hales, Patty Holt, Lorraine Tuttle and April Williams. Nebo uses its own keyboarding materials – which were developed to meet the specific needs of Nebo’s keyboarding programs – to help students develop their keyboarding skills.
