National Spelling Bee Goes into Final Round

Ad Feedback

The National Spelling Bee goes into the final round Thursday and the competitors are facing intense pressure... that's P-R-E-S-S-U-R-E.

This is the 82nd Scripps National Spelling Bee.

A record 293 young people are taking part. They are fourth through eighth grade students from around the world.

Their challenge? To spell words, that most of us have never even heard of.

"Some of the words look like Pat Sajack and Vanna White threw up some vowels," said Bee host Tom Bergeron. "I look at some of these words and say, 'what is that?'"

The top prize for winning the bee is $30,000 dollars.

The winner will be revealed Friday night.
