Lincoln Public Schools has its 35th annual spelling bee

LINCOLN, Neb. (COLOGNE) – Lincoln Public Schools hosted the 35th annual Oral Spelling Bee on Saturday. Earlier and earlier, more than a dozen students competed for the spotlight and spelled words that became progressively more difficult.

Sixth grader Lumy Kim of Lux Middle School took first place and seventh grader Lindsay Parrott of Irving Middle School took second place.

“In life, you can do a lot with spelling,” Kim said. “For example, like the SATs, it’s all about spelling, and you can benefit greatly from knowing a bunch of words.”

The spelling bee took place at Culler Middle School. It started at 8:30 and lasted for about an hour. Top spellers from Saturday said they are already looking forward to next year.
