towards the overall development of the child. We are proud to enter our 
eleventh consecutive year and look forward to engaging some of these 
wonderful spellers,” said Rahul Walia, founder of the South Asian 
Spelling Bee and CEO of Touchdown Media Inc.

Within the past year the South Asian 
Spelling Bee has been exhaustively featured in “Breaking the Bee” and an
 exclusive story on VICE News that followed the journey of South Asian 
Spelling Bee spellers and the importance of the South Asian Spelling Bee
 platform being a vital step in their spelling journey.

The top two spellers of each regional 
competition will advance to the finals to be held in New Jersey in 
August. Champion’s grand prize of $3,000 will be awarded to the winner 
at the finals.

This year, the Bee is proudly powered by
 Kawan- the world’s most popular Roti paratha brand returns as the 
powered by sponsor and as always, Sony Pictures Networks is the 
exclusive broadcast partner for the South Asian Spelling Bee and will be
 airing the series across 120 countries.
