Bainbridge Girl Headed To National Spelling Bee
A Chenango County girl will once again be at the finals of the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. Melodie Loya of Bainbridge won the regional bee held over the weekend at SUNY Oneonta. The home-schooled student correctly spelled the word “frivolous” to win the competition. She will now be heading to the finals held from May 27 through June 1. The national bee is in its 91st year.
