Poquoson Middle School Spelling Bee

Spelling Bee Winners

Tatum Smith won the annual Poquoson Middle School Spelling Bee.  She studied a broad list of words and learned the patterns and mechanics of word etymologies that she felt she would likely encounter on the big stage. 

Tatum will move on to the regional spelling bee.   The regional spelling bee is made up of middle school students in the Hampton Roads area and will be held at the WHRO studios in Norfolk, VA on February 16, 2019.
