Congratulations to Neil X, Scripps Spelling Bee (click to read more)
Congratulations to Neil X. (6th), our school spelling champion, who placed 7th in the Scripps National Spellling Bee Regionals in March. The Los Angeles region is one of the toughest in terms of size.
V-I-R-T-U-A-L was the word this year, and the Scripps events were cancelled in 2020. This year, they were mostly virtual with the in-person finals limited in size. The finals, with a dozen spellers competing for a $50,000 prize, will be televised on ESPN on July 8.
