At the end of the evening, sixth grader, Brianna Bartley, from Montross Middle School, sealed her victory by spelling correctly the final word of the night. The runner-up was fifth grader, Trinity Fauntleroy from Cople Elementary School. Ms. Bartley will now prepare for the regional contest in Fredericksburg.

The event was coordinated by Anne Glancy, Director Emeritus of Instruction and Assessment and Carole Alexander of Washington District Elementary School.  The spelling bee announcer was Carole Kelley, Director of Special Education. Judges included Cathy Rice, Assistant Superintendent of Instruction and Assessment, Patty Long, Home and Public Relations Specialist, and Joyce Clayton, Assistant Superintendent Emeritus.

The National Spelling Bee was started in 1925 by the Louisville Courier-Journal, which had conducted a statewide match to find the best grade-school spellers in Kentucky.  They then decided to extend the challenge to other newspapers to choose their own champions to take part in a spelling showdown in Washington, DC, to determine a national champion. Nine contestants competed.  In 1941, Scripps took over the sponsorship of the National Spelling Bee. There was no spelling bee during the war years of 1943 – 45. Co-champions were declared in 1950, 1957, and 1962.  

We congratulate all of our champions who represented their prospective schools so well.
