81 students from 18 area schools will compete in the 2014 Grant County Spelling Bee sponsored by Indiana Wesleyan University Tuesday. The contest will take place at 1 pm at College Wesleyan Church.
I-W-U is one of the few universities to sponsor a local spelling bee where the winner moves on to national competition.
The 2013 local champion...Madison Jones of R.J. Baskett Middle School...is now in high school, which means she’s ineligible to defend her title, which is limited to fourth through eighth graders.
The winner of the local competition will advance to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington D-C in late May.
