Blanding Elementary School held its annual spelling bee on January 27.  The students had studied hard, producing an intense showdown for the final three students to advance to the district competition.  Neither the first or second place champions missed a word until the 17th round, when Nathan Redd got tripped up on “gesticulations”.  Melody Crippen spelled her way through to the championship with the correct spelling of “Patagonia” and “interminableness”.  Advancing to the next level are (left to right) Anthony Done, third place; Melody Crippen, first place; and Nathan Redd, second place.
