Home » 27 students gear up for spelling bee » Unverified Comments


  • I have always attributed my vocabulary, in part, to participating in spelling bees way back when in Victoria. Throw in some reading and crossword puzzles and soon the words come more naturally. Hard to enjoy them in the midst of the bee with the nerves firing, the stomach churning and everyone watching, but I hope that each of the contestants realize they are already successful, not only because they have competed and won the right to represent their schools but also because they are learning more as they go. Good luck to all. Joel Anderson
