Spelling Bee Goes 38 Rounds Before Winner Is Determined

The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg hosted the annual county wide spelling bee last night.  Students from schools around the county participated in the competition ranging from 4th to 8th grades.  Fifteen students competed to be top speller through many rounds of increasingly difficult words.  Many went out in the first ten rounds, but soon the top four would take the competition to ever more difficult words.  The top two spellers of the county brought the bee to 38 rounds before a winner could be determined.  Be sure to watch the video above showing the top three winners.

Congratulations to all who participated and the four winners who received trophies and cash prizes from Kentucky Farm Bureau according to Sue Litkenhus, a representative with KFB.  Everyone also enjoyed a meal provided by the Cattlemen’s Association.  The winners will be moving on to the state competitions in Louisville.

The top four winners are:

4th: Laci Hurst from Turner Elementary
3rd: Sophie Grigsby from Emma Ward Elementary
2nd: Ethan Smith from Anderson Middle School
1st: Matthew Phillips from Anderson Middle School
