FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Van Wert sixth-grader Aaron Reichert competed in the 65th annual Journal Gazette Spelling Bee on Saturday.

Reichert had won the Van Wert County Spelling Bee in February which allowed him to move on to the Regional Spelling Bee. Reichert, who was one of 15 spellers, was eliminated from the competition on Saturday after misspelling "bonanza."

The winner of Saturday's competition was West Noble Middle School eighth grader Grant Flora from Noble County. Flora will move on to the 92nd annual Scripps National Spelling Bee. (DHI Media/Kirsten Barnhart)
