Oh, the Ironing of It All!

Amarillo, Texas, the hometown of Caitlin Campbell. She recently took 8th place after misspelling collyrium (Eye Lotion). Still, this was quite an accomplishment for the 14 year old Campbell.

To honor her, the town of Amarillo decided to put up a billboard in her honor to welcome her back to town. They wanted to congratulate her on her efforts at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, DC.

One problem, the company that created the banner misspelled her name. The banner read: Congratulations! Caitlin Cambell for making Amarillo proud. The company supplying the space for the banner has agreed to replace it with one containing the correct spelling.

Amarillo, your word is proofread. I will use it in a sentence. Proofreading is the act of making sure there are no typos before producing a document. That’s P-r-o-o-f-r-e-a-d.
