ENTERPRISE,  Ala (WDNews) – Ayden Nguyen, an 11-year-old from Hillcrest Elementary School in Enterprise, Ala made a outstanding showing at the Scripps National Spelling Bee. After winning the Alabama state championship, Ayden advanced to the national competition where he would finish as a quarterfinalist, placing 60th overall. 

Ayden, the only representative from Alabama, impressed many with his spelling skills. His journey ended with the word “aubade,” in the 4th round, but his achievement has already made his Wiregrass community and his Hometown of Enterprise extremely  proud. Congratulations Ayden!
