My son competed in the MastiSpell Spelling Bee... -- Mike Berman (MastiSpell Parent)

My son competed in the MastiSpell Spelling Bee on Saturday, May 17. I just wanted to send a note to congratulate everyone involved in the event for an outstanding achievement. We thought the event was absolutely wonderful. It was extremely well-run and professional. The judges were outstanding and exceedingly fair. Everyone in our family had a great time. Others I spoke with at the event also seemed to be having a good time. The schedule was well coordinated, published, and maintained. The winners were clearly the best spellers. The facilities were excellent. Achievement was properly recognized and awarded at all grade levels. We were abundantly pleased and overjoyed to have the opportunity to participate in a spelling bee at his young age. My son is already excited about participating next year. You and your volunteers have done a tremendous contribution to the community by creating this event.

I have been to the Scripps National Spelling Bee three times... -- Michelle Horton (Mother of speller #418)

I have been to the Scripps National Spelling Bee three times as a mother of a speller and once as a spectator. I will be returning again this year as the parent of a speller. When I heard of Mastispell, I was excited for my young daughter to have an opportunity to experience a "Scripps-like" bee since my county here in Virginia requires her to be older in order to experience this. Thank you for offering this contest for the younger kids! Overall, I felt that the JUDGE/PRONOUNCER PANEL worked well together to try to be consistent with the spellers. I LOVED that you had a female and a male pronouncer to work together. I thought that was superb. I felt like they worked to enforce the rules and they were very kind to the students. Kindness goes a long way to take the sting out of missing onstage. Kudos to you all for putting on this competition and working so diligently to try to improve it! Way to go! Happy Spelling! - Michelle Horton (Mother of speller #418)

First of all hearty "CONGRATULATIONS" on a very successful... -- Anjana Ghosh

First of all hearty "CONGRATULATIONS" on a very successful accomplishment, third time around. My son, Neal Bhatnagar, participated and made it on to the oral round, unfortunately, he got eliminated in Round 3. But for us, it was an enriching experience, although he was a little upset, but my son wants to come back with a more powerful strategy next year. I think getting 'Kavya' was the most wonderful things 'Masti' did, kudos on that, she definitely inspired my son. Since my son was upset after his elimination, we were not able to stay back for the closing ceremony. I'd be interested to know the final winners in all categories, when do you plan to update your website with the 2010 winners list. Look forward to 2011 participation. Regards, - Anjana Ghosh

...thanks for organising this great event for our kids and congratulations... -- Veena

Hello, Just wanted to thank for the opportunity for my daughter to participate in Mastispell. And also thanks for organising this great event for our kids and congratulations on well organised event. We learnt about MastiSpell pretty late, just couple of weeks before, but it got both my daughter and me, to focus on the word study, and develop interest in it, which is a priceless. My daughter didn't qualify for the oral round, but we had lot of fun just preparing for this event and develop interest in word study, which is priceless. She is more determined to participate with better preparation next time. Congratulations again!! Looking for next year. Thanks Veena

...we were so impressed with the organization of the competition, the friendliness and warmth... -- Amy Little

Dear Organizers, My son, Jack Little, competed in the competition on Saturday and we weren't able to stay for the remainder of the competition after Jack was eliminated in Round 5. I'm writing for two reasons: 1. To let you know that we were so impressed with the organization of the competition, the friendliness and warmth of every single volunteer, and the kind and fair way the judges addressed each child. 2. To ask you when the awards and winners will be posted?! Thank you for everything you did to make this spelling bee a great first spelling competition for Jack. We look forward to participating next year! Sincerely, Amy Little

What a wonderful idea! I would absolutely love... -- MastiSpell Advisor

What a wonderful idea! I would absolutely love to help. I have been involved with spelling bees for the greater part of my 17 year teaching career. As a teacher and English department chair, I have become somewhat of an "expert" in organizing the different levels and "rounds" of a spelling bee.

Ishita loved the spelling bee competition. She was sad initially that she couldn't get to the stage and was trying to say the spellings sitting down. She is so inspired that she wants me to give her words for practice everyday so she can go on stage next year!!! Thanks and hope we can be more help next year! Great inspiration for little ones! Great work all of you.
