6th Annual PAGE of Wake County Spelling Bee Champion!

With almost 100 spellers starting out our morning round, competition was tough at the PAGE of Wake County spelling bee! Spellers ranging in age from our youngest speller ever (a 6 year old first grader) to 8th grade started out the morning round with a written oral test and a written vocabulary test. Then they were on to our second round, a one question only oral round.

Scores were calculated (and sometimes double and triple calculated) before our top 24 participants moved on to our afternoon oral rounds.

The afternoon portion of the Bee consisted of 9 rounds with increasingly difficult words. In the final round, all spellers misspelled their word…except one. Rahul Sachdev stood alone on the stage. After correctly spelling his final championship word correctly, Rahul was declared the winner!

Rahul will be going to the Scripps National Spelling Bee at the end of May. PAGE wishes him the best of luck, and congratulates all of our spellers on a job well done!
