Wallace Student Wins State Spelling Bee

Posted by wlpo on March 16, 2013

For the second straight year, a La Salle County speller is headed to the national bee in Washington, D.C.

Wallace Grade School’s Ram Koganti bested the competition at yesterday’s Peoria Journal Star Grand Finals Spelling Bee to punch a ticket to the Scripps Spelling Bee in late May in D.C.  Koganti won yesterday’s state spelling bee by getting “outrageous” correctly in the 28th round.

Last year, La Salle’s Grant Innis won the state bee in Peoria.
