I am going to be a fifth grader, but in the middle of my fourth grade year I won my class spelling bee went and won my grade level spelling bee and i had finally won my schools spelling bee! I couldn't believe that i won! I went over to the county spelling bee. I messed up on the word rhetoric. I think I spelled it reteric or retoric. Both the competitors in the national spelling bee did great. I believe that all the spellers that didn't win are still winners for practicing and at least getting somewhere. Anyone is a winner as long as they put the effort.
