After successfully competing in their classroom bees, 14 Babylon Junior-Senior High School students took part in this year’s school spelling bee in the library.

The talented seventh- and eighth-graders navigated challenging words derived from various countries and time periods as they vied for the title of school champion. The bee went for several rounds before eighth-grader Kaitlyn Tourin was named the winner after correctly spelling “dementia.”

Kaitlyn will now compete against other school winners at the Long Island regional spelling bee at Hofstra University.
