Olentangy Schools is home to Ohio's 2021 regional spelling bee champ. 

Hurshil Nittala, an eighth-grade student at Liberty Middle School, spelled the word Sylph correctly to take the championship crown March 27 at the 2021 Ohio Virtual Regional Spelling Bee. Hurshil was among 115 spellers to complete a preliminary online test to qualify for the regional competition featuring 48 finalists, including 14 students from Olentangy Schools. Hurshil will now represent Olentangy and the region at the prestigious Scripps National Spelling Bee this summer.

Congratulations, Hurshil!
