Congratulations to Mira O., a student from Sands Montessori School, for winning the Region II Division of the 2012 WCPO-TV Spelling Bee. Mira competed against 60 other students from around Ohio. Her winning word was 'Italianate,' meaning to be Italian in quality or characteristics.
Along with bragging rights, Mira and one parent will be treated to an all-expenses-paid trip to the Scripps National Spelling Bee set for June in Washington, D.C.
