Pamintuan to represent GMS at 2018 Scripps Regional Spelling Bee

Annual Spelling Bee returns to Mercer County

Annual Spelling Bee returns to Mercer County

Maggie Sheridan is a spelling machine.

Students will be lining up to show off their spelling skills in Mercer County.

After Champion misspelled "ellipses" in the ninth round, Sheridan correctly spelled "architectural" and the championship word "decrepitude" for the win. Lilly Champion, a Madison eighth-grader, finished as runner-up. Green River has seen some success in spelling bee competitions in the past, with back-to-back Wyoming spelling bee champion Victoria Allen representing the state at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.in 2013 and 2014.

But this is a new year.

"I wasn't really sure how it would all play out", Sheridan said. "It's luck of the draw". "I thought that I might get far, but I didn't think I'd get to the top 11".

"I was nervous. Then, I wasn't". "Mostly I'm preparing for the regional and national bees".

"My goal is to make the most of my time", Sheridan said.

Champion nearly lived up to her last name.

She joined her sister as a sixth grader in the local spelling bees.

Trump not want CHIP in short-term budget deal
Tim Kaine and Mark Warner all released statements that they'd vote against a short-term funding bill Thursday morning. But some conservatives, including those in the White House, want big concessions in exchange.

"This will help me with speaking in front of people, " said Carire. "I said, 'I'm going to do bad.' I got zero sleep last night because of it".

There were 63 spellers, accompanied by their parents and school officials.

"I was terrified with great depth", Champion said. "I don't like big groups of people".

In addition to Carire, the other top 10 contestants in the District 31 Spelling Bee will move on to the citywide bee.

"There was some pretty fierce competition", said Jennifer Pennell, gifted coordinator for the Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center.

The studying paid off, as once again James advances to the Ottawa County Spelling Bee in February.

Sheridan outspelled 62 other participants from 13 area schools, including one of her triple sisters Katie and a fierce Madison eighth grader with a name worthy of a victor, Lilly Champion, who came in second place.

But even without her title, 14-year-old Sheridan has a "wild card pass" to the national spelling bee.

Most of Thursday's competitors were middle-school students, but Discovery School entered a second-grader and a third-grader.
