Erica Campbell & GRIFF discuss the Scripps National Spelling Bee that took place just last week. For the third year in a row, the Spelling Bee has seen a tie in its winners- Jairam Hathwar from Painted Post, New York and Nihar Janga from Austin, Texas. The Spelling Bee has been held in America since 1925, and its contestants must be fourteen years of age or younger.
Due to the youthful age limit of the National Spelling Bee, the level of cuteness each year is pretty much always at an all-time high. Erica & GRIFF discuss the national competition, and even play a clip of one of the littlest spellers (who happens to be the competition’s first 1st grader) totally nailing it!
