Vithul Ravivarma, seventh grader at Beaver Lake Middle School, is a champion speller! When he started at BLMS in 2016 as a sixth grader he won their annual spelling bee. This year, he took top honors again, becoming a repeat champion. Winners of school spelling bees in the Seattle area are invited to the King and Snohomish County Regional Spelling Bee, where students compete against other school champions from the greater Seattle area for a shot at moving on to the Scripps National Spelling Bee. In a thrilling victory Ravivarma won the regional spelling bee, and will now go to Washington, DC to represent the King and Snohomish County area in the Scripps National Spelling Bee! He is the first national representative from Beaver Lake Middle School. Congratulations Vithul!
