Winning Spelling Bee Word Is One Every Christian Should Know: Koinonia

But then the three-time Missoula County spelling bee champion will once again hit the books. And third-place finisher Abhijay Kodali lives in Flower Mound, another 40 miles west.

"This has just been a dream come true". It was the largest group in contest history to advance to the championship finals.

This year more spellers qualified because of a new invitational programme called "RSVBee", which allows those who didn't win a regional or state bee to still apply for the nationals if they had won their school bee or been a former national finalist.

The past 13 champions and 18 of the last 22 have been Indian-American, and that trend could easily continue.

Karthik spelled the word "koinonia" correctly to become the champion late Thursday.

The soft-spoken boy spelled the term correctly and was showered with confetti and given more than $42,000 in cash and prizes.

For Utahns, you might want to take advice from actor Jim Carey, who perfectly explained how to spell the word, according to People.

She said she struggled with the "ae" because that's not normally seen in German.

Naysa's close friend, Jashun Paluru of West Lafayette, Indiana, finished fourth, spelling with flair and spending most of his time in between words chatting animatedly with Naysa.

Raghav, 12, of Montpelier, competing with the best spellers in the country, correctly spelled perionychia (definition: "the tissue bordering the root and sides of the fingernail or toenail").

The finals began with 41 spellers, and the number slowly dwindled over five rounds, but there was never a mass exodus from the stage.
