2009 Spelling Bee

Ok I have to admit that I am a Spelling Bee freak. I absolutely love to watch it. Those kids are so amazing. The winner last night was 13 year old Kavya Shivashankar. She knew every word she had to spell and made it look so easy.

All of Kavya's hard work paid off. As the winner she receives $30,000 in cash and $7,500 in scholarships. This was her 4th bee.

For a list of all the words the kids spelled correctly click on Kavya's picture at the top of this post.

Two really good Spelling Bee movies are Spellbound and Akeelah and the Bee. The library has both of them you should check them out (especially Spellbound, it is SO good.)

Are you a fan of the Spelling Bee?
