KISD: Ridgeview 3rd Grader Places 3rd At Regional Spelling Bee
Ridgeview Elementary School third-grade student Vivinsha Veduru finished in third place at the TCU Regional Spelling Bee on Thursday, March 7.
At age 8, Vivinsha was one of the youngest competitors at the Bee, but that did not stop her from successfully spelling her way through 18 rounds. By Round 19, only she and two students who were in the seventh and eighth grades were left.
Vivinsha incorrectly spelled the word “proclitic” in Round 19, ending her run in the Regionals, but she proudly represented Area 13 (Keller ISD and Northwest ISD), and only being a third-grader, she will have plenty of opportunities to return to the Regional Bee in the coming years.
