Kimmie Collins spells Round 3 word correctly at national competition


The Tribune-Star

---- — Kimmie Collins has successfully spelled the word “shenanigans” this afternoon during Round 3 of the National Spelling Bee competition in Washington, D.C.

Earlier in the day, Kimmie made it out of Round 2 by spelling the word “dreidel,” which is a four-sided toy used in a game of chance.

Kimmie is an eighth-grader at Woodrow Wilson Middle School in Terre Haute. The Tribune-Star Wabash Valley Regional Spelling Bee champion qualified for the national competition for the second year in a row.
