Three District 191 students head to regional spelling bee

Aradhana Menon, an eighth grader at Nicollet Junior High in Burnsville, along with seventh grader Chance Persons of Metcalf Junior High in Burnsville, and sixth grader Joshua Holden of Marion W. Savage Elementary in Savage, have all qualified to compete in the 2015 Minnesota Seven County Metro Area Regional Spelling Bee, which will take place on March 21 at  Augsburg College in Minneapolis.

They are among only 50 students in the region to qualify through an online test. Aradhana was the winner of the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 Spelling Bee in December, with Chance as the runner up and Joshua as one of the two winners of his school’s spelling bee last fall.

The winner of the Regional Bee will qualify for the Scripps National Spelling Bee, to be held in Washington, D.C.
