Participants in the National English Spelling Bee Contest Visit the Embassy

The U.S. Embassy in Sofia was honored to host more than 30 high school students and their teachers on April 27, just one day before the CorPlus National English Spelling Bee. These students were from all parts of Bulgaria, and advanced to the national finals due to their hard work, determination and spelling skills. During their visit to the embassy, the students and teachers met American diplomats, including an FBI agent with a background in archaeology, a consular officer and a U.S. Marine. The next day, the finalists competed in the National Spelling Bee, which is organized by CorPlus, and which has long been supported by the U.S. Embassy.
