Scripps National Spelling Bee - 8th Grader Ava Cloonan will Represent Oswego NY

Every year, students from all walks of life have the opportunity to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, one of the nation's oldest and most iconic competitions. They progress from classroom to cafeteria, from auditorium to civic center, delighting friends, family, sponsors and fans, just as millions of other students have done before them.
Oswego Middle School students, faculty and staff recently recognized Ava for her efforts and gave her a warm send - off to the Bee.
