After nine rounds, butterscotch was the winning word for the Blount County Spelling Bee held earlier this month. The event whittled down to three contestants in just seven rounds, and down to two spellers in the eighth round. Jaden Overby from Blountsville Elementary School was the spelling champion. Locust Fork Elementary student Ella King was first alternate, and Rosita Galvan from Susan Moore Elementary was second alternate.
