LINCOLN, R.I. (AP) — A middle school student from North Kingstown has won the Rhode Island State Spelling Bee for the second-straight year.
Wickford Middle School sixth-grader Stephen Landry took home his second title Sunday, beating two dozen other students from across the state at Lincoln Middle School.
WLNE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1cniR1c ) that Stephen won the contest after correctly spelling "chassis."
The victory qualified him for the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C., in May.
