DeKalb County Spelling Bee continues today

A DeKalb County Spelling Bee winner should be decided today after the Feb. 22 event garnered national media attention for failing to produce a winner after 3½ hours and 74 rounds.

A spell-off between Sycamore Middle School student Matthew Rogers and Keith Mokry, a student at Somonauk Middle School, will begin at 10 a.m. today at the DeKalb County Regional Office of Education, at 2500 N. Annie Glidden Road in DeKalb.

The Daily Chronicle sponsors an all-expenses-paid trip to National Harbor, Md., in May for the winner to represent DeKalb County in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Rogers and Mokry weren’t the only contestants left in competitive limbo.

Two contestants in the Jackson County Spelling Bee in Missouri will battle it out today after lasting more than 60 rounds in the initial competition.

Both contests have gained national attention through various media outlets, including “The Rachel Maddow Show.” To view Maddow’s piece about the competitions, visit http://shawurl.com/10uk.
