2022 Spelling Bee Winners

2022 Spelling Bee Winners
More than a dozen students attempted to spell their way to the top during the Southern Local School District Spelling Bee on Feb. 2, but only three advanced to the county level. Sixth-grader Delaney Beadnell correctly spelled “inferior” to earn the winning spot while seventh grader Ella Roberts was first runner-up and eighth-grader Alli Myers was second runner-up. They will join other contestants from Columbiana County schools to compete in an online preliminary test at the end of February with the final 20 heading to the county spelling bee in March in Lisbon. The winner of that contest will then head to the 2022 Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. Pictured are, from left, Roberts, Beadnell and Myers.
