Gabe Scott, a 10-year-old, fifth-grade student from Julia P. Bryant Elementary, won the 2013 Bulloch County Spelling Bee Monday night at the Statesboro High School Fine Arts Auditorium. Scott correctly spelled “reactionary” to claim the win against his remaining opponent, Lauren Jung, a 10-year-old fifth-grader from Sallie Zetterower Elementary. The two received their trophies and awards from Bulloch County Schools Superintendent Charles Wilson, who thanked them and all the contestants for their hard work.
