Here is the champion of the senior spelling category, Vayun Krishna from Sunnyvale, CA! Vayun won the WishWin – SpellPundit National Senior Online Spellathon, which was held in September 2020. Great job, Vayun!
About 170 spellers from 5th through 8th grade participated in the preliminary written tests comprising of 25 spelling and 25 vocabulary questions. Vayun was one of 104 spellers to qualify to the semifinals based on his written test score, and he was one of the top 4 spellers in his semifinals group to advance to the Grand Finals. Vayun lasted many grueling rounds to claim the championship.
Vayun has been a SpellPundit student for the last 3 years. The SpellPundit team wishes Vayun all the very best for the 2021 spelling bee season and the last year of his spelling bee career!
Ananya Rao Prasanna from Omaha, NE is looking smart with the trophy! Ananya was the runner-up of the WishWin – SpellPundit National Junior Online Spelling Bee competition, which was held in September 2020. Ananya confidently spelled many difficult words and gave a tough competition to the champion. The SpellPundit team wishes Ananya many more achievements ahead!
