HOW DO YOU SPELL W-I-N-N-E-R?
6歳の少女 スペリング全国大会へ
Kendis Gibson:
Here, Thursday morning Pulse starting with the National Spelling Bee. Nearly 300 competitors took their turns in the preliminary rounds.

Diane Macedo:
And the field is now down to 40. Six-year-old Edith Fuller stepped to the microphone as the youngest ever participant. Her first word — nyctinasty, nyctinasty. Can you spell it?

Kendis Gibson:
Ah ... N-I-X ...

(Edith Fuller)
"Nyctinasty, N-Y-C-T-I-N-A-S-T-Y, nyctinasty."

(Judge)
"Correct."

Diane Macedo:
So, not quite, Kendis. Edith spelled that and her second word correctly, but her scores on preliminary written tests weren't high enough to keep her in the competition.

Kendis Gibson:
But just to show that she really is a six-year-old kindergartner, after she found that she didn't make it to the next round, she ran to her father and burst into tears.
