An Early County 6th grader will represent Southwest Georgia at the state spelling bee.

Davia Allen won the first place trophy in the regional spelling bee last week.

There were 17 contestants representing school districts across southwest Georgia.

The winning word? Acronym.

Davia says she practices her spelling by having her mom call words out to her. She got her start in competitive spelling a couple years ago, and says her success was a bit of a surprise.

This will be the third time Davia Allen has made it to the state level in the competition.
