SCRANTON—Osage County sixth grader will make her second trip regional spelling bee in Topeka after winning the Osage County Spelling Bee Jan. 29 at Scranton Attendance Center.
Hinterweger showed no sign of celebration as she won the bee in the 15th round on the word “arrogant.”
“It felt really good,” Hinterweger said. “I was pretty confident. I studied a lot.”
At least every night since winning the Carbondale Attendance Center spelling bee last week. The short turnover left her feeling a little worried about some of the words on the list.
