Middle school students from Cameron, Lathrop and Plattsburg participated in the County Spelling Bee Thursday, February 18 at Plattsburg High School in the Performing Arts Center. More than thirty, 5th – 8th grade students spelled their way into the County Bee, but it was Victoria Mumm and Katie Cintron, both 7th grade students at Clinton County R-III middle school who stole the show.
When Brandon Hallock, Lathrop 5th grade student, misspelled the word "cajolery" - the battle was on and the two Plattsburg girls went through 17 rounds before Mumm emerged as the winner, spelling the word "liquesce".
The top three contestants were first place, Victoria Mumm, daughter of Joyce and Dustin Mumm; second place, Katie Cintron, daughter of Susan and Tim Cintron; and third place, Brandon Hallock, son of Roberta and Jim Hallock.
Mumm and Cintron will move on to the Northwest Missouri Regional Spelling Bee Saturday, March 6 at St. Francis Xavier School in St. Joseph. Hallock will serve as alternate.
