I-Kan Regional Spelling Bee

Before the Iroquois-Kankakee Regional Spelling Bee began, contestants gathered backstage for last-minute preparation, jiggling their legs and twisting their hands nervously as they asked questions about things such as capitalization and hyphens.

The front half of the auditorium at Bradley-Bourbonnais Community High School was full of supportive friends and family members, there to see who would be this year's winner. It was a big night, more than just a spelling bee, but a chance to advance and compete at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.
