SpellPundit students are creating buzz in Scripps Regional bees! Congratulations to Colette Giezentanner for winning the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Regional Spelling Bee. The SpellPundit team wishes Colette all the best in the national spelling bee!
Here is the champion, Faizan Zaki from Allen, TX. Faizan won the WishWin – SpellPundit National Junior Online Spellathon, which was held in September 2020. Way to go, Faizan!
To win the championship, Faizan outlasted 145 other spellers in the Junior Spellathon. He was one of 100 spellers to qualify to the semifinals based on his written test score. Then Faizan was the one of the top 4 spellers in his semifinals group, which selected him for the Grand Finals. After many nail biting rounds, Faizan was declared champion. It was amazing to see how he tackled the words to withstand the competition!
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!
Congratulations to all the spellers who participated in the WishWin – SpellPundit Senior Spellathon Semifinals Groups A, B, C, and D. You all worked very hard to come this far. We are very proud of you all!
