La Entrada names spelling bee winners

Benji Chang and Mirabel Stoutamire battled for first place

La Entrada School in Menlo Park held its annual spelling bee in January, with eighth-grader Benji Chang winning first place by spelling the word "megaphone," but only after 13 championship rounds against the runner-up, fifthgrader Mirabel Stoutamire. Both spelled words such as "philosophaster" and "scissile."

Benji will compete in the San Francisco Chronicle Spelling Bee this month, with a chance to advance to the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Tied for third place were fourth-grader Tommy Ellingson, fifth-grader Grace Venverloh, sixth-grader Chloe Leung, and seventh-grader Dana Lau.
