The Colorado State Spelling Bee is a competition like no other. This was my second year competing so I knew what to expect: a difficult written test determining who moved on to the oral rounds.

The Colorado State Spelling Bee is a competition like no other. This was my second year competing so I knew what to expect: a difficult written test determining who moved on to the oral rounds. With words such as “branchiferous,” “beelzebub,” and “bacciferous,” this was no easy feat. Having not passed this test to make it to the next level last year, I had high hopes this time; but alas, I missed the cut by only two words and was sent home along with a few hundred other of the best spellers in Colorado. On the bright side, there’s always next year.
