A Castle North Middle School Student is currently in  Washington D.C. representing the Tri-State in the National Spelling Bee.

Pranav Chandar is a sixth grader at Castle North Middle School who recently won the Regional Spelling Bee. This qualified him to go to the National Spelling Bee. How cool is that?

I remember when I was in sixth grade...I didn't win a spelling bee, but I didn't come in last either. One can only imagine how exciting this is for Pranav. According to our media partners, Eyewitness News, Pranav says:

“There’s this list called CWL and that has like 30,000 words or something. And that’s a big list to go through and I’m going through that right now.”


The National Spelling Bee is going on right now. You can watch it here to root Pranav on! You can also check on his results round by round by clicking here.
