The Jackson County Spelling Bee started at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Kansas City Public Library’s Plaza Branch.
It isn’t over yet.
“We did over 60 rounds,” said Mary Olive Thompson, a library outreach manager and co-coordinator of the spelling bee. “We ran out of words.”
I say in the future we set a “cutoff” and anybody left in the Spelling Bee after however many rounds ALL move on to the finals. Just a suggestion.
