Providence Spelling Bee 2014
Creston Brooks, Joshua Limsenben, Brandes Woodall
On January 8, an audience of parents and peers gathered in the gym as nine spelling champions, one from each section of Classes Five through Eight, competed in the annual Scripps School Spelling Bee. The competition was fierce. By Round 11, only three students remained: Brandes Woodall, Class Six; Creston Brooks, Class Seven; and Joshua Limsenben, Class Eight. Tension mounted as everyone wondered if Joshua would claim the crown for a third consecutive year.
Correctly spelling challenging words such as aubergine and portmanteau, Brandes and Creston proved to be formidable competitors. However, in Round 15 Joshua won his third Providence championship by spelling latitudinous and decrepitude correctly. Congratulations to Joshua Limsenben who will represent Providence in the next level of competition, the Dallas County Private Schools Spelling Bee.
