Davis Moore wins Southwest Minnesota Spelling Bee

By Norma Dittman Murray County News Staffwriter

Davis Moore, Worthington, MN correctly spelled the word “physician” to win this year’s Southwest Minnesota Spelling Bee.

Nearly 50 fifth and sixth grade students participated in the first round of the Southwest Minnesota Spelling Bee that was held on Saturday morning at Fulda Elementary School. The first round consisted of a written test of 40 words.

From that round, the top 13 students advanced into the second round. The second round was an oral round and each student was required to spell the same five words.
