King-Snohomish 2019 Regional Spelling Bee

We've temporarily removed the full video of the King-Snohomish Regional Spelling Bee which took place on March 2. The Scripps National Spelling Bee requests local spelling bee organizers and media sponsors wait until after April 1 to post video of the full competition.

Watch the highlight reel.

Congratulations Nidhi Achanta from Maywood Middle School! She is the 2019 King-Snohomish County Regional Spelling Bee Winner, for the second year in a row! Her winning word: Porphyry

Watch 90 middle-schoolers knock out words like zwieback, alluvium, thalweg, and peccadillo!  The regional spelling bee brings together students from schools across King and Snohomish Counties who have already proven themselves to be fantastic spellers. This year's bee is moderated by Seattle Radio Theatre founder and KIRO Radio's producer, host, and historian Feliks Banel. The winner will advance to the annual Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.
