    Sahil Langote is the champion of the Delaware State Spelling Bee sponsored by Saint Mark’s High School. His winning word was “dubonnet” meaning a very dark purplish red. The competition involving 71 spellers from 71 schools throughout the state lasted 25 rounds. Isabel Palmer, a 6th grader at Hockessin Montessori School, finished in 2nd place and Sage Sawhney, a 6th grader at F. Neil Postlethwait Middle School, finished in 3rd place. Both students were awarded a trophy provided by Saint Mark’s.
     
    Spellers competed at Saint Mark’s High School on March 16, 2019. Dave Skocik served as pronouncer for the competition and the judges who tracked every word and verified spelling accuracy were Robin Brown and Craig Anderson. Spellers studied the 2019 School Spelling Bee Study List and Spell It!, a 1,150-word list provided by the Scripps National Spelling Bee and Merriam-Webster. Langote now advances to compete in the 2019 Scripps National Spelling Bee in the Washington, D.C. area, and broadcast on ESPN channels May 29-31. In addition to the expenses-paid trip to the national finals for him and a parent, Langote also wins these prizes:
    • The Samuel Louis Sugarman Award is a 2019 United States Mint Proof Set provided by Jay Sugarman, chairman and CEO of iStar Financial, in honor of his father. Langote will receive the prize in June.
    • The Britannica Online Premium is a one-year subscription for the premier online resource from Encyclopædia Britannica.
    • The Merriam-Webster Unabridged Online is a one-year subscription for the official word source for all levels of competition for the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
    • A 1st place trophy provided by Saint Mark’s.
     
    “All of the competitors should be proud of how well they represented their school and their family,” said Anne Marie Eanes, English Department Chair at Saint Mark’s and the organizer of the bee. “I am always amazed by how well the students spell words that are well beyond their working vocabulary.” Saint Mark’s has sponsored the regional bee event for 11 years. The competition encourages students to set goals and dedicate time to study and prepare. Participation also provides an opportunity for students to gain experience in public speaking and performing under pressure.
     
    The Scripps National Spelling Bee provides the list of words for the regional competition. The Bee reaches an estimated 11 million students across the country and in other parts of the world with the classroom materials it provides to enrolled schools. The purpose of the Bee is to help students improve their spelling, increase their vocabularies, learn concepts and develop correct English usage that will help them all their lives.
