36th Annual Spelling Bee held by Joplin Globe


Some Four State students showed off their spelling skills in Joplin on Monday morning.

The 36th Annual Joplin Globe Spelling Bee featured 84 students between 4th and 6th grade from Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma.

Last December students began preparing for the contest when schools received a study list of about 2500 words.

To advance to the spelling bee students first had to win their school bee.

The winning word - paladin - correctly spelled by Jaden Gallagher, a student from Truman Elementary School in Nevada.

Second place went to Silvio Venturella , a student at Steadley Elementary in Carthage.

Third place was claimed by Kelsey Kerrigan, a student at Stapleton Elementary in Joplin.
