Martinsville 8th-grader in Scripps National Spelling Bee

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.

Wilt said she is keeping her expectations practical, but she said if she actually wins, she would probably scream and cry.
