Special to 1812Blockhouse

The 2022 Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center Tri-County Spelling Bee took place on Thursday, February 10th at Mid-Ohio ESC in Mansfield. An impressive group of 34 of the top spellers from 16 local school districts in grades 4 through 8  from Crawford, Morrow, and Richland counties were invited to compete to be the Tri-County Spelling Bee Champion. This event was the first in-person spelling bee to take place since 2020.  

After 10 rounds of competition, Miles P., a sixth grader from Lexington, became the 2022 Tri-County Spelling Bee Champion after spelling the winning word, “mirages,” optical phenomena that are often observed on still days over deserts or hot pavement.

MOESC Announces County Spelling Bee Winners

21 Jan , 2022  

Special to 1812Blockhouse from MOESC; emphasis added

The 2022 Mid-Ohio ESC County Spelling Bees took place virtually this year in the same manner as in 2021. The format of the virtual bees was very similar to a typical bee where each student had the opportunity to spell a word in each round until a champion and runner-up were crowned. The county bees have remained virtual; however, students will be invited back to Mid-Ohio ESC for the Tri-County Spelling Bee February 10th.  

The Crawford/Morrow County Spelling Bee was held on Thursday, January 13th. Twenty-eight students competed to be named champion of the bee. The bee lasted 14 rounds until a champion and runner-up could be determined. Kaylynne Bralow, a sixth grader at Cardington-Lincoln Schools, became champion by spelling the word “petroglyphs.” The runner-up was Highland Local Schools eighth grader Jeremiah Brown.
