Summary :

On Thursday May 10, a 14 year old boy named Karthik Nemmani from Scoggins Middle School in McKinney, Texas won the 2018 National Spelling Bee. He stunned the world when he beat crowd favorite and veteran competitor Naysa Modi. He won by spelling the word koinonia. Koinonia means an intimate spiritual or Christian communion.

Naysa messed up on the word bewusstseinslage. She messed up the single and double ā€œsā€. Even though Karthik won this national spelling bee, he did not win his county or even regional spelling bee. In fact, it was Naysa who had defeated him and other competitors in March at the Golden Chick Dallas Regional Spelling Bee! Karthik won a trophy, and prizes worth $40,000, including $25,000 in cash, trips to New York and Los Angeles for appearances on national television, a reference library from Merriam-Webster, and a pizza party for his school. Karthik won his first spelling bee at the age of five!

  2. Dear Emma,
    You did a good job. I like how you said what word they messed up on. I also like how you included the definition of the word because I didn’t know what the words were.
