Every year at my school p.s.119, the fifth grade always has an annual spelling bee. Well this year I, Nicholas Jhagroo was in it. At first I was a little bit worried about it because then i knew i would have to study a lot for this big event. Then, at the end of November 29th, 2012, the ‘big day’ I went through the whole thing and got a big win!
During the time I had to study I was not wasteful and studied. This was not really hard though because I looked at the definition and was tested by my parents. Eventually, after time passed I was ready for it. Then I noticed delays happening with the spelling bee with the hurricane that had passed us which was Hurricane Sandy. We had to postpone it a few times. This made me now worried because I just wanted to get it over and done with. After a while, me and my friend were finally going to do it. When I saw the whole crowed watching me, I was astonished. It was smaller than I thought it would be. I lasted for a couple a rounds and then my partner got out. I was alone and that’s when I got really nervous.
Soon, there were only two people left and that’s where I won. The other person got the word ” auditorium” wrong but i got it right. Then came the final word. It was “valuable”. I spelled it like ” VAL-U-ABLE.” Then I learned that being prepared was the right thing to do because the at the end my hard studying payed off.
