This is the fourth consecutive year a D181 student has qualified for the National Bee.

“We are so proud of Srinidhi’s accomplishments and look forward to seeing her continued success,” said D181 Superintendent Dr. Hector Garcia. “It is fascinating to watch her excel on the stage and we wish her the best of luck at the national competition.”

Srinidhi’s mother, Leelaa Rao, said people are always amazed when they see her daughter’s talent and learn her age.
