Miquel Girončs, from Cassā de la Selva, wins the 3rd Gran Final Pica Lletres 2011
The word that won for him was zingiberācies (zingiberaceae).
The 3rd Big Final of Pica Lletres 2011 was held at the Poliorama theatre, with singer Lluís Gavaldā from Els Pets as the master of ceremonies.
13 students from 13 different schools took part. Each one of them represented, on the one hand, his or her school and, on the other, the area of Catalonia corresponding to the zone of local TV coverage that broadcasted the previous phase of the competition.
After a hard-fought competition, during which the contestants showed their very high level of knowledge, only three contestants were left: Aina Mārquez, from Vic's Jaume Callís high school; Martí Sala, from Caldes de Montbuis Escola Pia high school and Miquel Girončs, from Cassā de la Selvas La Salle high school, who won after spelling the word zingiberācies correctly.
