My advise for anyone wanting to compete next year would be, first keep coming back. I was here last year and never won.

  • Learn a word a day.
  • Find ways to make studying fun.
  • Be committed and dedicated, it will paid off.

I also would encourage all spellers that step on the stage to be proud of yourself. You already won because you SHOWED UP!
