Haas Hall Academy Bentonville is proud to announce that Srikar Chittemsetty emerged from last Saturday’s Benton County Spelling Bee as champion. The competition lasted 51 rounds before Srikar finally won by correctly spelling the word “yakitori,” which is a type of Japanese dish consisting of skewered chicken. Srikar will now compete in the Arkansas State Spelling Bee at Cabot High School on February 1st to earn a place at the national bee which will be held in Maryland during the month of May.
Great job Srikar! Husky Nation is very proud of you!
