The Sangamon County Regional Office of Education would like to congratulate MEDHA VENIGALLA for becoming the champion of the Regional Spelling Bee!
On March 22, 2014, the Sangamon County ROE in cooperation with The State Journal Register sponsored the 22nd annual Regional Spelling Bee. The Spelling Bee took place at West Side Christian Church. There were 27 fourth-through-eighth graders from a four county area.
Medha is a seventh-grader at Glenwood Middle School. First runner-up was Nidhi Venigalla, a fifth-grader at Glenwood Intermediate School and sister to the champion. Second runner-up was Dylan Hembrough, a fourth-grader at Springfield Christian School.
Medha will compete in the televised 87th annual Scripp's National Spelling Bee on May 25-30 in Washington, D.C.
Congratulations to all of the participants!
