Congratulations to UV Spelling Bee winner Amy Avolio
With the spelling of the word “guffaw,” Unadilla Valley sixth grader Amy Avolio advanced to the DCMO BOCES 13th Annual Regional Spelling Bee at SUNY Oneonta on March 7. If she wins there, she’ll advance to the National Spelling Bee near Washington D.C.

Amy competed against 25 other students in grades 6-7, and lasted through 13 rounds.

English teacher Suzanne Cleveland said the students had been preparing for the competition for about four weeks.

“Amy did a great job. She is a great student who loves to read and was excited for this,” she said.

“She was determined to do well.”
