Students Compete at District Spelling Bee


West Genesee Middle School students, Ben Paoli and Ava Propper, faced-off spelling such words as "amnesty" and "exonerate" until they exhausted all of the challenge words, so the judges determined them both to be the winners in the West Genesee Spelling Bee held on November 9.

This year, West Genesee will send 12 students to join others from Central New York for a written test in January. The top 35 spellers from that round will compete in The Post-Standard WCNY Spelling Bee oral spell-down in February.
