9-Year-old girl wins Martin County spelling bee

The best spellers in Martin County schools squared off Thursday in the district spelling bee.

This is another step toward the "Scripps National Spelling Bee" that will be held later this year in Washington, D.C.  

NewsChannel 5 morning anchor Ashleigh Walters was the pronouncer for this year's bee.

The winner was 9-year-old Olivia DuBois, a fourth grade student at Port Salerno Elementary School. 

Her championship word was Hebrides, an archipelago comprising hundreds of islands off the northwest coast of Scotland.

Samantha White, a fifth grade student from Pinewood Elementary, finished second in the spelling bee.

Thursday's spelling bee went nine rounds.
