Idaho Regional Spelling Bee winner set to take on D.C.

Delaney Williams is headed to Washington D.C. The winner of the Idaho Regional Spelling Bee at Boise State, Delaney will be one of the representatives at the Scripps National Spelling Bee on ESPN.

The Boise 4th grader won the southwest regional spelling bee after months of practice.

"It's pretty amazing how she just hears things, see things and can remember them." said Sarah Williams, Delaney's mom.

She spends at least an hour a day writing out words on flashcards and locking them into her brain.

"Practice pays off and I've studied every day." said Delaney.

Delaney and a parent get an all expense paid trip to the Washington D.C. to compete with 250 other kids in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
