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
The preparation for SpellPundit’s competition is in full swing! Meet our team of pronouncers and judges who are determined to make the virtual spelling bee run smoothly. Here is a glimpse from today’s zoom info session!
