Queens Kid Is (Again!) Citywide Spelling Bee Champ

Srinath Mahankali, a 12 year old who just completed 7th grade at Nathaniel Hawthorne, M.S. 74, was welcomed to Queens Borough Hall on June 29 by Queens Borough President Melinda Katz. The Borough President presented Srinath with a Citation of Honor in recognition of his victory in this year’s Daily News Spelling Bee, a citywide competition among the top young spellers from across the five boroughs. With his second consecutive victory, Srinath earned the honor of representing New York City again in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. this past May. Joining Srinath for the meeting with Katz were his father, Srinivas Mahankali, and grandmother, Kamalamba Mahankali.
