A big grin broke across Ben Rice's face Thursday as soon as he heard the word "transience," which he knew would win him a second consecutive championship in the Volusia County Spelling Bee.
Ben stepped to the microphone Thursday afternoon, GFebruary 24, 2011, and carefully spelled the word to beat out 33 other spellers in the countywide event at DeLand Middle School. Hannah Ginsburg, an eighth-grader at Ormond Beach Middle School, was the runner-up. She was eliminated in the 11th round after failing to spell "mimetic," an adjective meaning characterized by or exhibiting a superficial resemblance of some organisms to each other or the natural objects among which they live.
