Martinsville eighth-grader Ali Wilt is one of seven students representing central Indiana in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
"I'm really just excited to see how I compare with the others and collaborate with a lot of people who really love spelling because not everyone understands how someone can love spelling so much," Wilt said.
