2017 GAE State Bee Champion

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!
