Moultrie County Spelling Bee Winner
The 2014 Moultrie County Spelling Bee was February 12 at the Little Theatre on the Square. Six students from Lovington and six students from Sullivan advanced from their school district spelling bees to participate in the county competition.
The Moultrie County Spelling Bee champion is Dylan Sanders (pictured right). The alternate is Spencer Johnson (pictured left).
Judges for the county spelling bee were Karen Smith-Cox of Lovington, Eudora Drollinger and Jonathan Harwood, both of Sullivan. Nicole Garrett, a Sullivan Middle School teacher, served as the pronouncer.
The regional spelling bee is scheduled for Saturday March 22, at Eisenhower High School in Decatur.
