Word: Flout. Definition: Openly disregard (a rule, law or convention). Used in a sentence: Jackson Ady seemed to flout any notion at the Solano County Fairgrounds that he couldn’t spell well.
The 11-year-old fifth-grader from Kairos Public, a Charter School in Vacaville, defied any notion he couldn’t come through in a pressure situation, winning the Solano County Spelling Bee on Tuesday night when he spelled “flout” correctly.
Ady was the only contestant to spell six words correctly, going 6-for-6. No other person spelled more than four words correctly.Ady will move on to the California State Spelling Bee, set for May 9 in Stockton.
