Albany -- It's Spelling Bee time for elementary school students. Friday morning at Magnolia Elementary School 22 fourth and fifth graders squared off in their school's spelling bee.
Adam Keith won by correctly spelling "sequel". Spelling bee coordinator Ouida Standley said "If you are going to work in the world you have to be able to spell and to speak."
Winner Adam Keith said "If I put my mind to it, I can be world champion in spelling bee."
Adam Keith won in an impressive competition, and now will represent his school in the county wide spelling bee February 7th.
Winners could advance to the state championships, and then the National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C.
