2016 MassMutual South Asian Spelling Bee Announces Boston And New York Winners

Press Release
07/27/2016

The South Asian Spelling Bee, now sponsored by Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual) with its acquisition of MetLife’s Premiere Client Group, continues its legacy in its ninth year (www.SouthAsianSpellingBee.com).

In the Spelling Bee’s quest to find the best spellers in the South Asian community, families arrived this past weekend to participate in the daylong regionals in New York and Boston. 

In Boston, Pranav Chemudupaty (12) from Pearland, Texas was named regional champ, Ashrita Gandhari (9) from North Andover, Massachusetts was first runner up, and Richa Juvekar (12) of Westford, Massachusetts, was the second runner-up.


In the NY Regional, Srinath Mahankali (12) of Oakland Gardens, New York was the regional champ, Sravanth Malla (12) of Haverstraw, New York, was the first runner- up, and Anil Singh (13) of South Ozone Park, New York, was the second runner-up.

The South Asian Spelling Bee is designed to attract top talent and new spellers and to encourage participants as young as five to interact with other spellers; gain stage confidence; acquire camera savvy; and compete for coveted prizes and titles.

The event is open to children of South Asian descent up to 14 years of age. It gives them the opportunity to test their spelling skills within their core peer group. Interested spellers should have their parent or guardian register them online at www.SouthAsianSpellingBee.com.

Organized by Touchdown Media Inc., the South Asian Spelling Bee is conducted in 12 locations across the United States starting June 11. Regional level events will be held in Los Angeles, the Bay Area, Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Seattle, Atlanta, Charlotte, Washington, D.C. Metro, New Jersey, New York and Boston.
    
In addition, Accra, Ghana, was announced as the thirteenth location from which spellers of South Asian descent will qualify for the finals. All events are free to attend and open to the public.

“It’s been a great experience building this platform, and we as a team now look forward to this new inning with MassMutual to further expand and create a veritable platform for the community,” said Rahul Walia, founder of the South Asian Spelling Bee and CEO of Touchdown Media Inc.

“We are excited to be part of the Spelling Bee program,” said Wonhong Lee, Assistant Vice President, Diverse Markets, MassMutual Financial Group. “We understand this event emphasizes the importance of education within the South Asian community. It naturally aligns with MassMutual’s mission to provide financial education and promote financial health in the communities we serve.”
