National Spelling Bee becoming easier to predict


Merriam Webster defines the word as "capable of being perceived, especially by the senses". Finally, how many Reubens were being consumed during the past few months in Pennsylvania, where users were searching for how to spell "sauerkraut"?

Hannah will be a fifth-grader at St. Stephen the Martyr School next year. The last 10 National Spelling Bee winners have participated in the foundation's spelling bee, and 17 of the past 21 champions have been Indian-American.

Vanya Shivashankar, left, 13, and Gokul Venkatachalam, 14, hold up the championship trophy as co-champions after winning the 2015 Scripps National Spelling Bee. Six-year-old Edith Fuller, from Tulsa, Okla., is the youngest-ever Bee competitor. Not everyone is happy about the latest change.

Wisconsin may have been the only state this year where the top searched word was the name of the state itself, but last year that honor went to MA (this year the Bay State had trouble with the word "license").

She was the reigning champion of her school and has been nicknamed the "Queen Bee".




While Minnesotans often boast about the beauty of our lake-dappled state, we apparently have trouble spelling the word "beautiful".

"In nearly every bee there's a kid or a handful of kids that there's a lot of chatter about because they've done well previously", said Paige Kimble, the bee's executive director.

But, back to New Hampshire: Perhaps there's something in the water, because diarrhea was the spelling it most often looked up previous year as well. "It gives a lot of hope for people". "My final year there it was a girl who, it was her first time in the nationals". But be ready to hit pause after each word is announced so you can make your guess before continuing on to hear Naomi recite the correct spelling. She also earn points on a preliminary test Tuesday consisting of 24 written spelling and multiple-choice vocabulary items divided into four sections. In 2009, a fellow speller from the Cleveland area who was one year younger than he asked for his help.

ESPN3 also will broadcast the third round from 1:15 to 6 p.m. Good old Pennsylvania really pulled through with "sauerkraut".
