South Florida will be well represented at the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

One of those competing is 9-year-old Raza Hidayath -- a student at the Garden of the Sahaba Academy in Boca Raton.

His sister competed in the spelling bee last year.

All spellers will take a written test Monday and the preliminary rounds begin Tuesday. Finalists will be announced Wednesday evening.
