Today is the start of Bee Week 2016! We have so many fond memories of the Bee Week. It feels like not very long ago, Kavya qualified for the first time to participate in the 2006 National Spelling Bee.
We cherish our first experience at Bee Week 2006. There was a lot of excitement and we were blown away on how the week was conducted. It was an experience of a lifetime and we all enjoyed the event very much. It wasn’t just the competition that we loved; there were (and still are) several fun activities and educational tours throughout the week that made it so memorable.
Below is a clipping that was aired on a local TV station that summarizes the beginning of our Scripps journey. There is no question that we caught Bee Fever. We kept wanting to go back again and again, and here we are, headed back to the bee in 2016 to watch it all unfold.
We wish the very best to all of the contestants of the 2016 National Spelling Bee.
