Congratulations to Nikil S. for winning the Regional Spelling Bee on Tuesday, March 19 at Shenandoah University. This is Nikil’s second Regional Spelling Bee win; he won his first regional bee in 2017. Nikil prevailed in the 38th round, a vocabulary round, by choosing the correct definition for “isobar,” as something that can be “found on a map.” Nikil earned an all-expense paid trip to the Scripps National Bee at the Gaylord Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland, in May. He also won a mint coin set, a first place medal, and a meal gift certificate to Buffalo Wild Wings.
