Can you use it in a sentence?
"It was important to p-r-o-m-u-l-g-a-t-e the fact that only admiration, not l-a-r-g-e-s-s-e-s, was bestowed upon the BMS Spelling Bee winners who were to a-d-u-m-b-r-a-t-e their bright futures with their spelling prowess."
BMS Spelling Bee champion eighth grader Dayna Rapkin can take that to the bank....or at least to the regional finals of the Scripps National Spelling Bee on March 7th at Cuyahoga Community College! Rapkin had to undergo many rounds of words before winning the title with the word "promulgate."
Students competed respectively in sixth, seventh, and eighth grade rounds. The top three finishers in each grade level are pictured here with the top speller in each grade holding her winning word. They are sixth grader Orly Wolf, eighth grader Dayna Rapkin, and seventh grader Sylvia Stewart-Bates.
The other finalists include sixth graders Michael Elias and Zaneta On, eighth graders Ethan Cooper and Carly Stark, and seventh graders Jesseca Hudson-Turpin and Neel Agarwal.
Rapkin will represent Brady Middle School at the regional competition. The winner from the regional contest will go on to Washington, DC to compete for the national title and a $30,000 cash prize.
Congratulations to all of our W-I-N-N-E-R-S and good luck to Dayna at the regional contest!
