The morning after the Championship Finals, spellers had the opportunity to explore D.C. We decided to go to the National Air and Space Museum which was interesting.
That evening, we attended a fancy Awards Banquet, at which we honored the ten finalists. Afterwards, we all went to the Cherry Blossom Ballroom for a dance party that lasted until midnight!
Participating in the National Spelling Bee the second time around was more fun because I knew what to expect and spelling on stage wasn’t as overwhelming as my first time. The Bee is a great place to meet kids from all over the world and forge friendships that will last a lifetime! It was amazing to be surrounded by so many people who share my love of words!
I hope you all enjoyed the Insider’s Guide to the 2015 Scripps National Spelling Bee. I know that I certainly enjoyed writing it!
