Georgia 4th grader from DeKalb school to be honored for representing state in Scripps National Spelling Bee

In March, Sarv Dharavane, a 10-year-old from DeKalb County, emerged as the champion of the Georgia 2024 spelling bee.

School officials at Austin Elementary School are preparing to celebrate and honor a fourth-grade student in a special ceremony on Wednesday morning.

Dharavane has secured an all-expenses-paid trip to National Harbor, Md., as confirmed by the DeKalb County School District. He will be participating in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, scheduled to take place later this month.

According to the school district, Dharavane, who is only 10 years old, emerged as the ultimate winner amongst all the other participants from across the state in the spelling bee competition. It is worth noting that contestants can take part in the competition until they reach the age of 16.

DeKalb County officials announced that in addition to his victory at the 63rd Annual Georgia Association of Educators State Spelling Bee, he also emerged as the winner of the Georgia State Technology Competition in Project Programming.

Dharavane and Matthew Baber, the runner-up of the spelling bee at Rising Star Middle School in Fayette County, have been selected to represent Georgia in the Scripps competition, as confirmed by the Georgia Association of Educators.

Both students, who will be competing at the Scripps National Spelling Bee, are set to begin their journey on May 28. The finals of the competition will come to a close on May 30.
