Parents were just as nervous as the kids themselves, nearly 30 of which participated in Thursday's spelling bee. The winner is of the spelling bee was Angelina, with Joel Martinez as the runner up.

Angelina will go on to compete in the overall spelling bee on Feb. 22 at the Solomon P. Ortiz Center.
