On Feb. 21, 41 spellers from south central Minnesota competed in the South Central Service Cooperative Regional Spelling Bee, a qualifier for the Scripps National Spelling Bee. The participating fifth through eighth grade students had previously won their local bees.

After 47 rounds, the longest bee in SCSC history, Briana Joseph, a seventh-grade student from Fairmont Jr./Sr. High School, was named champion after correctly spelling “carious” as her championship word.
Joseph was awarded a plaque, spelling supplement, mint coin set, a one-year subscription to Encyclopedia Britannica Online, a one-year subscription to Merriam-Webster Unabridged Online, and travel expenses and accommodations to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.

Emily Spieker, an eighth grader from Dakota Meadows Middle School, gave a valiant effort with 27 head to head rounds with Joseph before misspelling “spinosity.”
The top spellers also included third place Jack Nesnidal from Shakopee West Junior High and fourth place Emily Sullivan from Le Sueur-Henderson Middle School. Sullivan exited the bee in round 14 on “azimuth” and Nesnidal erred in his spelling of “lieutenant.”
