Sixth-Grader Wins Meridian Middle School Spelling Bee

Ani Nuthalapati takes first place in the annual contest.

Meridian Middle School sixth-grader Ani Nuthalapati was declared the school's best speller when she won this year's spelling bee.

Her win came when she spelled "hallucination" correctly, School District 102 reported in its e-newsletter.

Second place went to sixth-grader Mythili Bulusu.

"The two top competitors were both exceptional spellers and battled it out for a long time," said Reading Specialist Susan Melnick, who organized the spelling bee competition for the seventh year.

Forty students competed in this year's event.
