2018 Spelling Bee Finalists The Scripps National Spelling Bee is the nation's largest and longest-running educational program. The purpose of the Scripps National Spelling Bee is to help students improve spelling, increase their vocabulary, learn concepts, and develop correct English usage that will help them all of their lives. Last year 11 million students across the country participated in the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Sixty-five students in grades 5, 6, 7, and 8 completed in the fourth annual Scripps Spelling Bee at Camden Middle School on Wednesday, January 17. The students competing were the winners and runners-up of their classroom spelling bees which were held in December. All students did an outstanding job representing their ELA classes and at the end of the evening, 8th grader Areionna Morales was crowned the winner of this year's school competition. Competing with her until the final round was runner-up Lindsay Melancon, sixth grade, and finishing in third place was fifth grader Hannah Cere. Thank you to not only this year's spellers, but also all of the family and friends who helped to study and were there to show their support.
