The NYC kid can’t be in the National Bee, so he spells at home

The NYC kid can’t be in the National Bee, so he spells at home

Vale Esposito is studying fifth grade at Lower Lab School in Manhattan. The 10-year-old Upper East Cider surpassed 60 other New York children to win a place in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, scheduled for May 24-29 in Maryland.

One of my favorite words is Coffeecatch, which is a conversation about coffee. I hoped I could get a chance to spell this out in the TV round at Scripps National Spelling Bee. Now I pronounce it at home.

I worked really hard to win and practiced words for 30 minutes every day. I am a type of flower and I have won the city bee with a word Wanda spell I have never seen before. I had to find it on the spot.

I left the cup with too much to carry. My school was very excited about winning. The Chancellor threw a popcorn party for my friends and me.

My classmates are having dinner watching the national bee. When it was canceled, my heart froze for a moment, and my mind didn’t know what to do. I still don’t understand why they didn’t push it early next year. This is very frustrating. I was looking forward to staying at a hotel in Maryland, visiting DC, and participating in a dance with other competitors.

The corona virus has carried a lot.

But I would have dinner at home. One of my favorite words is Crookambuch – a tower of French pastries that look like donuts. We could be one of the guests.
