The Memphis-Shelby County Spelling Bee Results Are In

It was an amazing battle of the dictionary-minded select. Hudson Myatt, our FES representative, fought hard and made it to the second round. Colin Cantwell, our HMS rep, made it to the third round. His word was “meiji”—just to give a glimpse of the difficulty level. Frederick, our DES spelling representative, made it all the way past the four round and the written test—earning a place in the top 24 spellers in the area.

RES 5th grader, Sophia Overstreet, passed all four rounds and qualified in the top 10 for the written test. She placed fourth while competing against 133 outstanding participants from schools in the Memphis and Shelby County area.

Congratulations to all of our competitors.
