Congratulations to Sean Fogerty, age 13, from Robert D. Edgren High School on the Misawa Air Base for winning the 6th Japan Times Bee!
Following 19 rounds, the championship round came down to Fogerty and Ganesh Gautham Elango, from K. International School Tokyo in Koto Ward.
The winning word was “snood,” which means “a net or fabric bag for confining a woman’s hair pinned or tied on at the back of the head.”
Sean will represent Japan in the upcoming Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.
A job well done to all the participating spellers!
