Today is the big day for 11-year old Evan Bishir of Fairmount. He begins competition today in the National Spelling Bee in Washington D-C.
Bishir and his family traveled to the nation’s capitol over the weekend to see a few sites and get set for the start of today’s competition. Some 515 spellers from all over the country will begin preliminary competition today in the 90th annual Spelling Bee sponsored by Scripps.
Evan Bishir just completed sixth grade at Park Elementary in Fairmount. He won the Grant County Spelling Bee in late March.
