FORT WAYNE, lnd. (WANE) A local seventh grader will represent our region in the annual Scripps Howard National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C. next week. Students and teachers hosted a big send-off at Lutheran South Unity School Friday afternoon for Lwin Moe Aung.
He won the Allen County Spelling Bee the past two years and won the regional competition this year. Awng says those wins didn’t come without a lot of preparation. “After school, I would study on the computer,” said Awng. “And after that, I would study for two to three hours every day.”
The National Spelling Bee competition starts Tuesday.
