GAE State Spelling Bee

Congratulations to
Abhiram Kapaganty, Age 11
Burnette Elementary in Gwinnett County

Georgia's 2017 State Spelling Bee Champion

At Scripps National Bee Abhiram spelled his 3rd round word "arguendo" correctly, but did not amass enough points to move into the final round.
He finished tied for 41st place.
Nevertheless, we are so proud of him
and at only 11, we expect to see him back at state next year!

GAE State Spelling Bee


Dear Spelling Bee Coordinators:

The spelling bee committee of the Georgia Association of Educators (GAE) will soon begin planning for another successful spelling bee program for the coming 2017-2018 school year. GAE is again proud to offer Georgia students an opportunity to exhibit their proficiency in the art of spelling. If a participant is successful at the school system level, then he/she will have the opportunity to advance to the district competition. The district winners and runners-up compete in the state spelling bee with the state winner advancing to the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

All information regarding next year's bee will be available this coming August. Please visit us again at that time.

Meanwhile, let's all wish Abhiram well and cheer him on to nationals!



Dr. Sid Chapman, President
Georgia Association of Educators
