Nebo’s Annual Elementary Keyboarding Competition is in the history books!

r On Wednesday, April 18, 2018, hundreds of 4th- and 5th-grade students from every elementary school in Nebo School District gathered at Spanish Fork High School to compete for top honors in Nebo’s Annual Elementary Keyboarding Competition. The single elimination event hosted three rounds of timings with the highest recorded score being 109 words per minute!

DJs Mark Boothe and Colton Sermersheim provided music throughout the afternoon and evening. In addition to the three rounds of timings, students, parents, teachers, and principals participated in school cheers, music and rhythm activities under the direction of Laura Brockbank and Melanie Fillmore, members of Nebo’s Fine Arts Specialist Team, and line dancing under the direction of Erin Boothe and Annalece Misiego.

Second place in each grade level received a $75 Visa gift card. Third place in each grade level received a $50 Visa gift card. Fourth place in each grade level received a $25 Visa gift card. Fifth through fifteenth places in each grade level received a nice, crisp $10 bill.
