Congratulations to Dryden Meints, a homeschooled seventh grader, who won the Douglas County Spelling Bee earlier this week.
In second place was a seventh-grader from a private school, St. Robert Bellarmine, and in third place was an eighth-grader from another private school, Holy Cross.
There were 22 spellers from public and private schools and homeschools in the countywide competition, though winners of the two largest public school districts, Omaha Public Schools and Millard Public Schools, were not there because they received a "bye" to the regional contest.
Top spellers will face off in the Midwest Spelling Bee on March 20.
