They should rename these competitions. In spelling bee or geographic bee competitions you only see PIO.
May be they should called PIO spelling contest.

This year the 4 finalist of Geography bee were all of Indian Origin.
Last 5 years the spelling bee champions all have been PIO, mostly from Andhra Pradesh.
Scripps national Champions
2012 The winner was Snigdha Nandipati from San Diego, California. Her winning word was guetapens. She was the fifth consecutive Indian American, and the tenth since 1999, to win. The runner-up was Stuti Mishra from West Melbourne, Florida, who misspelled schwarmerei and was eliminated.

2011 Sukanya Roy, of South Abington Township, Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania

2010 Anamika Veeramani, from North Royalton, Ohio

2009 Kavya Shivashankar of Olathe, Kansas

2008 The winner was Sameer Mishra, a 13-year-old eighth grader at West Lafayette Junior-Senior High School, in Indiana.
