SAN RAMON — As the Bay Area’s top spellers get ready to compete this Sat in the CBS Bay Area Spelling Bee, some of them are no strangers to local spelling competitions.

In San Ramon, nearly two hundred kids competed in the Spandana Foundation’s spelling bee at Quail Run Elementary School in San Ramon.

The nonprofit started the annual Bay Area contest 6 years ago to increase South Asian students’ vocabulary and helps them fall in love with language.

But for some, this bee has offered another opportunity. Yudith Anil of Kolb Elementary in Dublin earned a spot in the CBS Bay Area Spelling Bee hoping to win a trip to the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
