In my sixth grade year, 2017-2018, I got in the district spelling bee and I was estatic! I studied for a few hours a week, not really taking it seriously. I ended up getting first place! That was one of the proudest moments of my life. After that, I was in the county spelling bee. I studied way more for this one. I almost won, misspelling ‘prohibition.’ I honestly thought I spelled it right and was super excited, wondering what happened next, and then the lady rang the bell and I felt like a balloon being deflated.
The Bee does not have plans to offer a Spellebrity Video Contest in 2019. If this should change we will update spellingbee.com accordingly.

In the final regional spelling bee of 2018, Houston is sending its top two spellers from the competition. This year, Pranav Chemudupaty, from Alvin Independent School District, was the champion, and Benjamin Chen, a student at Beaumont Independent School District, was runner-up. Houston is the largest regional competition, with 1,060 enrolled schools.

I got five right
Garrett Bryner, an eighth-grader at Mont Harmon Middle School in Price, Utah, is returning for the second time to the national finals. He correctly spelled “Danube” to win the regional spelling bee sponsored by the Southeast Educational Service Center. Thanks to RSVBee, Garrett's brother, Pierce, also will compete, making them the first-ever set of twins to participate at the same time.

I'm back! And greater than ever. I moved schools and won the school spelling bee for the second time in a row and it was at a whole different education. I once again made it to regionals, and made to the finals by correctly jaguar, mongrel, and charlatan. The finals were a bit nerve wracking. I got through the first three rounds with lumpish, carpentry, and relentless. I was then kicked out by misspelling parsonage. But, as luck would have it, there was a new invitational program created by my dream. The national bee.
