The 8th grader from bend that went to the National Spelling Bee last year, is going back again this year. Hannah Allison, 14, who is home schooled, participated in Saturday's local bee at Ponderosa. They had to spell a lot of challenging words. Hannah Spoke with Kelly Bleyer: Hannah- “One of them was sevruga, which is a Russian word and it’s a light to grey caviar from the sturgeon of the Caspian Sea. Kelly Bleyer- “Did you know what that was? Hannah- “Yes I had studied it before.” Home Federal Bank sponsors the spelling bee.   Nathan Dayton with the bank coordinated the bee: “I think the spelling bee is a fun event. The kids get involved with to have fun; and receive a prize with a trip to Washington, D.C., So, something great, an awesome event that they can go to. It's something we wanted to be a part of.” Last year Hannah placed 49th in the National Spelling Bee. She hopes to do better this year. She will travel to Washington D.C. to compete in the National Spelling Bee on June 1st and 2nd.
