College finals? Nope. Big work presentation in the morning? Not even close. Those high-stress moments in life don't hold a candle to standing on a stage in front of your entire school, trying to spell "requisites" correctly to win the school spelling bee!

But Salem Twp. Elementary fourth grader Cameron Gieske did it and claimed a victory after more than 22 rounds and stiff competition from third grader Liam English. Congratulations to Cameron and all of the great spellers at Salem Twp. Elementary!
