Mason Intermediate School's Team Ingenuity sixth grader Samvit Das clinched the top spot in the school's annual Spelling Bee. Now, he's headed to the Regional Bee on March 18 at Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy.
The School Bee went 26 rounds, and Das was crowned champion after spelling the winning word "exponentially!" Das came in third place during the MI Spelling Bee in 2016, and this year he took home the title.
Congratulations, also, to the third place contestant, Vivian Chang
(fourth grader from Gia Borgerson's homeroom), and second place contestant, Urav Hingrija
(sixth grader from Team Quest.)
