Providence Elementary student Erik Sorrels represented his school in Evansville over the weekend in the Tri-State Spelling Bee, held Saturday at Ivy Tech.
Over 145 schools were represented in the competition, with the overall winner moving on to represent the Tri-State at the 89th Scripps National Spelling Bee held in Washington.
The contest began with a written round, where students had to not only spell the words correctly, but match them with their definition. The students with the top scores moved on to the oral spelling section.
“It was hard,” said Sorrels, who said he was knocked out of the competition by getting a definition wrong.
According to school officials, Sorrels qualified for the competition by beating out other students at Providence.
