Story excerpt:

"Aurora threw a p-a-r-t-y for 12-year-old Vikram Raju who claimed the title of runner up at the Scripps National Spelling Bee last week. Raju lives in Aurora.

Raju competed in 17 rounds and the first ever spell-off. The Aurora Library and city officials made him 'Honorary Junior Library Director' on Friday. The city recognized his passion for learning with a scholar award.

In the future, Raju wants to use his interests in medical sciences and technology to change the world for the better. He says he plans to use the $25,000 he won at the competition to pay it forward."
