Placing second was Chole O'Conner, an 8th grader at St. Vincent de Paul and third place went to Michael Pittman, an 8th grader at Oolitic Middle School. Arjent Imeris, a 4th grader at Burris Elementary School, was the winner of the elementary school division.

Moderator of the competition was Adele Bowden-Purlee.

Besides a trophy, Anna won $100 from WBIW; who sponsored the 38th annual Lawrence County Spelling Bee; a Papa John's pizza party for her homeroom, a WBIW t-shirt and a certificate of participation.

Klunder will now compete in the regional spelling bee on March 10th at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium in Louisville in hopes of winning a $5,000 savings bond.
