Sri Vaishnavi Kolluri wins the 2015 NSW (Australia) Premier's Spelling Bee

The State Finals of the 2015 NSW Premier’s Spelling Bee were held last Saturday at the ABC Centre in Ultimo.

More than 130,000 young people from across NSW battled for the chance to put their spelling skills to the test since July; in the end, that number had become just 86, as finalists stepped up to the microphone in a non-stop spell-a-thon.

Words such as 'paprika' and 'dormouse' proved too tricky for the diminutive dictionary devourers, and soon there were only two left standing - Jessica Ashe from North Sydney Public School and Sri Vaishnavi Kolluri from North Sydney Demonstration School . Sri Vaishnavi Kolluri who took the title with a loud and clear spelling of 'clairvoyant'.
