Last week, eighth grader Sukanya Roy took the title of the 2011 Scripps National Spelling Bees ever by rattling off the correct letters of “Cymotrichous” with the same ease as if the judges had asked her to spell “cat.” See if your spelling skills are up to par with hers by taking the Scripps spelling test
to see if you would make it to the semifinals.
If you're so inclined, you can also check out the 10 final words of the spelling bee
over at mental_floss to see if you know what they mean, let alone spell them correctly (I was 0 for 10 in the vocab department).Link
