On Feb. 19, 36 spellers from south central Minnesota competed in the South Central Service Cooperative Regional Spelling Bee, a qualifier for the Scripps National Spelling Bee. The participating fifth through eighth grade students had previously won their local bees.

After 11 rounds, Alayna Vogel, an eighth-grade student from Le Sueur-Henderson Public Schools, was
named champion after correctly spelling “alliteration” as her championship word.

Vogel was awarded a plaque, spelling supplement, mint coin set, a one-year subscription to Encyclopedia Britannica Online, a one-year subscription to Merriam-Webster Unabridged Online, and travel expenses and accommodations to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.
