Aubree Stefaniak, an 8th grader representing Gatlinburg-Pittman Junior High, clinched the championship title after eight intense rounds, correctly spelling the word "adversaria." Following a further seven rounds of competition, second and third place were awarded. Zoey Zweizig, a fifth grader from Pittman Center Elementary School, secured second place, while Kriti Patel, a sixth grader from Pi Beta Phi Elementary School, earned third place honors.
