Audience Bee - Bainbridge Public Library Spelling Bee

Queen Bee, Rebecca Judd; Master of Ceremonies, Bhama Roget; 'Vanna', Audrey Barbakoff, with the list of words the audience participants tried to spell; BPL Board member and Prize Coordinator, Judy Ruliffson; and one of the Spelling Bee teams (Bainbridge Fast Food Chefs) are all on stage.  No one in the audience got all the words right, but seven people got 4 of the 5 words spelled correctly.

Final Round - Bainbridge Public Library Spelling Bee

Master of Ceremonies, Bhama Roget, gets the spelling of a tough word in the final round from the winning team, The Bonnets.  Their rival team in the final round, The Boatwright Sisters, is anxiously waiting to see if The Bonnets get it right.  They did.
