(WTVM) - Students at Phenix City Intermediate School and Blanchard Elementary School competed in spelling bees on Wednesday.
The students joined together on stage going back and forth seeing who can spell the best.
Our meteorologist Elisabeth D'Amore hosted the spelling bee at Phenix City, calling out each word to the students.
Our anchor Jason Dennis had the honor of being the pronouncer at Blanchard's competition.
There was a large crowd of students and parents in attendance.
The winner at Blanchard was fifth grader Samantha Khoury and the runner up was fourth grader Bryson Evans. The winning word for today's event was cumbersome.
Congratulations to the winners and all who participated!
