Benson Middle School Spelling Bee

Thursday, January 17, 2013 BMS held its annual Spelling Bee.  It is a great event for the school and especially for the young spelling experts.  Each year twenty students, five from each grade level earn their way into the bee by qualifying in their grade level run offs. Then they are entered as competitors for the school wide bee with the other grades, grades 5, 6, 7, and 8. The Spelling Bee was held January 17, 2013  in the high school auditorium beginning at 8:30 and finishing up around 10:30. This year there were 126 words spelled during the bee with “transfixed” as the championship word.
