On Saturday, February 21, the Delaware County Scripps Spelling Bee was held at the Delaware County Intermediate Unit (DCIU), in Morton. This was the sixth annual Spirit/Scripp Delaware County Spelling Bee in which contestants from various Delaware County school districts compete.
Aidan, an 8th grade student, from Cardinal John Foley Regional Catholic School took first place and will represent the county in the Scripps National Spelling Bee near Washington D.C. in May. Aidan is the first Catholic school student to win the Delaware County Spirit/Scripps Bee!
