I never was good at speling.
Video Of The Spell-Off That Decided This Year’s National Spelling Bee Winner

The 2022 Scripps National Spelling Bee was the first ever decided by a spell-off, in which two contestants had 90 seconds apiece to correctly spell as many words as possible. In the video, young Vikram manages to spell 15 of his words correctly in the time, while Harini managed to spell 21, clenching the victory and a beautiful earthenware trophy. Congratulations! For reference, in my 3rd grade spelling bee I farted and got disqualified because my teacher thought I added a PFFFT in the middle of the word.

Keep going for a video of the spell-off in its entirety.
