Bee-reak a leg! Arizona sends two spellers to National Spelling Bee

Since their arrival, they been participating in various Scripps Spelling Bee events, which included a barbecue at the Washington Nationals baseball stadium.

The two longest words hailed from West Virginia and CT (way harder to spell than Wisconsin) and were the same: supercalifragilisticexpialidocious from Mary Poppins. Merriam Webster defines the word as "capable of being perceived, especially by the senses".

Given the laudable history of gender equality in Scripp's National Spelling Bee, this year's competition will likely be uplifting and unoffensive.

After Rounds 3 and 3, the spellers are chosen for the Finals based on points accumulated.

That's where 291 of the nation's top spellers - one as young as 6 years old - are gathered for the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Spelling Bee contestant, five-year-old Edith Fuller seen at the Oklahoma Green Country Regional Spelling Bee in Tulsa, Oklahoma, U.S. on March 4, 2017. Not everyone is happy about the latest change. That's probably not as bad as, say, people in Wisconsin, who apparently have trouble spelling the word "Wisconsin". The principal waived the school uniform for a day and encouraged kids to dress like bees - yellow tops, black bottoms. But probably not, considering last year's winning words were "gesellschaft" and "Feldenkrais".

When asked to spell "hospitality", Propper requested the word's definition from pronouncer Jacques Bailly. "If it didn't happen, then I would say that next year I will improve more upon my vocabulary and then I would make it back", Shaheer said. What words give you a rough time trying to spell? They lamented their misses and gossiped about what score might be "the cutoff" for making the top 50.

In the morning, Propper passed her first test in the oral competition, correctly spelling "capoeira", a noun that describes a Brazilian martial art influenced by dance and music.

Usually, she won, Edith said.

ESPN3 also will broadcast the third round from 1:15 to 6 p.m. "So I just couldn't be more pleased with her".

"You're going to do really good", Naysa said.
