  • National Spelling Bee becoming easier to predict

Fuller has been tackling spelling lists and advanced concepts that middle schoolers would find challenging ahead of the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Kelly Mills fell asleep at a county spelling bee when she was 4 years old.

"I read a lot", she said.

Edith impressed her parents by correctly spelling "restaurant" - a word she had never been taught.

The library has displayed Una's spelling bee trophies, plaques and certificates in a glass case in its children's department.

Ria's trail to spelling success began in November 2016 when she aced a written test that was given to all Mechanicsburg students in grades 5 through 8.

Four spellers from MA are headed to Washington, D.C.to compete in the national bee next week.

"I'm obviously excited about the spelling part since I worked so hard to get to the national bee plus it's my a year ago to be in spelling bees", said Fatta of Vienna.

The competition will be May 31 and June 1 in Washington, D.C. It is open to those in eighth grade or below.

Arsenal win FA Cup as Victor Moses sees red
But there were few signs of ring-rust as the former Germany defender produced three crucial last-ditch blocks to thwart Costa. Arsenal scored again nearly immediately, through Aaron Ramsey, and Mertesacker ended up deservedly on the winning side.

Even a champ sometimes gets stumped by an odd word or two, Ria admitted.

You might not be that familiar with Grace McKeegan, but she will have the chance to compete with a very elite group of young people this week.

"We studied for probably like an hour every day". But in the spelling community, he was a seasoned competitor with an impressive resume. Also, three of the nine kids who've won the South Asian Spelling Bee have gone on to win the Scripps bee. It includes spelling and multiple-choice vocabulary questions. On Wednesday, the spellers will compete in two rounds of oral spelling onstage. "And we've already told her that if she misspells her first word and is out right away, we are still proud of her". The 50 highest-scoring competitors will then advance to the finals. The finals will begin at 10 a.m. Thursday, and will air live on ESPN2, and the championship spell-off will air at 8:30 p.m. Thursday on ESPN.

Ria isn't all words and no play, however. But in fifth grade, when she was helping her sister Katie study for a bee, she realized she knew all of the words and made a decision to compete. She attends Winship Elementary School.

"I've also learned that feeling of being up on the stage and just looking out onto all those people and just focusing on the pronunciations", Prasad said. She also is fascinated by space and aspires to work for NASA someday as an astronautical engineer.

The preliminary rounds of the Scripps National Spelling Bee can be watched on ESPN 3 on Wednesday.

"I just tell myself that I'm here for myself".

"It is really exciting and means a lot to me, because I put a lot of effort into trying to do this", Aditya said in an interview.
