Yeh Hai Life!

Jai Jai Shivashankar! Kavya Shivashankar, 13, Wins 2009 Spelling Bee

In Entertainment, India on May 29, 2009 at 7:10 am

“Laodicean” – the winning word that won Kavya the Bee, 40,000 bucks and a huge ol’ trophy. The little glint in her eye, and the tear forming in her eyes as she was given the word made it pretty obvious she had bagged it.

Kavya is retiring from spelling at the ripe old age of 13. Its onwards and upwards, and off to pursuing a neurosurgeon dream now.
