On March 29th, Mohammed Sindeed Islam won the Ottawa-Carleton & Valley Regional Intermediate Spelling Bee. He will soon be off to compete again at the Ontario Championship on May 11th in Toronto.
Mohammad, 13, is a Grade 8 student at Abraar School. He began competing in Spelling Bees in Grade 2 with the support of his mother. He feels that it was good that he started so young as it helped him gain confidence in public speaking at an early age. In Grade 3, he won second place at the primary level and in Grade 6 he won first place at the Junior level and went on to compete at the Provincial Championship.
