A third grader from Wicksburg has won the Houston County Spelling Bee.

Schools from across the county were represented by their top spellers.

Gabrielle Moore took home the grand prize spelling "nepotism" in the championship round.

“I was kind of nervous and every time I went up there I tried not to think too hard or I'd miss the word,” says Moore.

She says she had a lot of help studying from two of her best friends.

Now she'll go to Birmingham for the statewide bee.
