PHOTOS: National Bee competitors spelling for top honours
The annual Gleaner's Children's Own National Spelling Bee Competition kicked off today with parish champions battling word after word for the chance to take the winning trophy.
The students, spelling words that some adults wouldn't dare to attempt, studied long hours for this moment.
Not all will make it to the top seven, but still did well.
Here are some of the highlights.
