Friday, January 31st, the annual local Scripps National Spelling Bee was held. The competition began with thirty-one participants from sixth, seventh and eighth grade.

The rounds advanced as the two battled back and forth. Finally, in round 38, Taylor C. became the 2014 Washington School Spelling Bee Champion by spelling the word transpire correctly.

Good luck at the County Spelling Bee!
