R.C. Murphy Junior High School seventh- and eighth-graders showcased their linguistic skills this winter when they took part in the school’s annual spelling bee.

After going head to head for 20 challenging rounds, eighth-grader Elizabeth Star captured the schoolwide title by correctly spelling the word “negativism.” She will now compete in the Long Island Spelling Bee, which will be held at Hofstra University on Feb. 5.

This year’s contest runner-up was eighth-grader Grace Li.
