Viglietti Places in Top Ten at State Spelling Bee
Mimi Viglietti, an 8th grade student at Urban Middle School spelled her way to 9th place out of 48 at the State Spelling Bee held on March 23 at Edgewood College in Madison, WI.
This was Mimi’s second trip to the Badger State Spelling Bee, and second year making it to the top ten round. This year, Mimi knew that once she made top ten, the words would rapidly become more difficult. She was eliminated on the word “sebaceous.” But Mimi wasn’t discouraged. “I’m just happy I got there,” she said. Mimi is the daughter of Whitney and Stefano Viglietti.
