Twenty-seven top middle school spellers faced off on January 22 in the annual Martin Meylin Spelling Bee. Each English/Language Arts teacher sent three students, providing equal representation for all grades in the competition.

After five rounds, eighth-grader Elisabeth Reinhart correctly spelled the words insignia and rudiments to win the bee. Second and third place awards went to sixth-grader Bethwel Kemoi and seventh-grader Noelle Hess, respectively. Six students then competed in a tiebreaker for fourth place, which was ultimately secured by eighth-grader Owen Dean.

Elisabeth, Bethwel, Noelle, and Owen are eligible to take a written test to qualify for the 62nd LNP Spelling Bee. The county bee will take place Friday, March 13, at Gerald M. Huesken Middle School. Good luck to our top spellers, and congratulations to all of this year's competitors on a job well done.
