5-Year-Old Becomes Youngest National Spelling Bee Contestant


This past weekend in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Edith Fuller spelled “Jnana” correctly to win the Scripps Green Country Regional Spelling Bee. What makes Fuller’s accomplishment extraordinary is that she’s only 5 years old, thus making her the youngest contestant ever to advance to the National Spelling Bee in D.C, which gets underway May 30. Like the previous record-holder for youngest contestant, 6-year-old Texan Akash Vukotic (pictured above), Edith is home schooled.
