Cayden was one of 31 students, grades 3-8, who competed in the Stanton County Spelling Bee Tuesday afternoon, January 30, at the high school auditorium. Cayden won by correctly spelling “karate.”
This year’s bee was much shorter than last year’s, lasting only six rounds. Round five saw Heidi White, Emily Ayala and Cayden as the only remaining spellers. In this round, only Cayden spelled his word correctly, advancing him to the championship round. If he had not correctly spelled his word, all three would have continued.
Congratulations to Cayden for his success. He will be registered for the Sunflower Spelling Bee at Ft. Hays State University, to take place on Saturday, March 3, beginning at 9:00 a.m. The public is always invited to attend. The winner of the Sunflower Spelling Bee wins a ticket to compete at the Scripps National Spelling Bee and attend a week of related activities in Washington DC.
Amerin wins the trip to Ft. Hays State and a free one-year subscription to Encyclopedia Britannica Online. He was awarded a medal and a trophy.
Congratulations are also in order for class bee winners who advanced to the county bee.
