SpellPundit Online Spelling Bee Competition

SpellPundit Online Spelling Bee Competition

When Scripps called off the National Spelling Bee in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, many spellers, especially students who are currently in 8th grade, were very disappointed to hear the news. SpellPundit decided to conduct our own online spelling bee in the same week of May to give these spellers a chance to compete. We have received an overwhelming response and many thank you notes from parents for planning the online competition.

The SpellPundit online spelling bee competition has also been getting a lot of media attention from Associated Press, New York Times, NPR, CBS, Scripps News, etc. Here is the latest interview with SpellPundit’s co-founders Shobha Dasari and Shourav Dasari! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TUl1FT8Ke_A&feature=youtu.be
