LCDS 8th Graders Advance to LNP Bee

With strong performances over two days and against a dozen competitors, Hana H. and Gavin W. finished first and second respectively in Lancaster Country Day School’s Middle School Spelling Bee. With their top showings, both Hana and Gavin advance to the semifinals of the 60th LNP Spelling Bee, working toward a spot in the 91st Scripps National Spelling Bee May 29 in Washington, D.C.

The semis consist of a 100-word written test. Those sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders who prevail move on to the finals, where the best spellers in Lancaster County will spell their hearts out for a spot on the big stage, Feb. 21 at Gerald G. Huesken Middle School in Conestoga Valley. In the final round at Country Day Feb. 2, Gavin put an “a” after the “e” in “celiac,” while Hana sealed the deal by nailing “tuberculosis.”
