Buzzing into Victory  1
Students from each grade level at James Wilson Young Middle School recently used their literary knowledge to out spell their classmates and take home the title of Spelling Bee champion for the 2016 school year. Representing this year’s winners were eighth-grade student Maitreyi Sinha, with the winning word “Jacobean,” seventh-grade student Spencer Hayes, with his winning word, “Alliance,” and sixth-grader Keara Schneck, with the winning word “Stilton.”

By earning the eighth-grade championship title, Maitreyi will advance to the Long Island Spelling Bee Championship to be held at Hofstra University.
