Insider’s Guide to the 2017 Scripps National Spelling Bee – Rounds 2 and 3

Hello everyone! Round 2 of the 2017 Scripps National Spelling Bee commenced this morning. The round started with 291 spellers and ended with 259 spellers. A total of 32 spellers missed their words in this round and were eliminated from the competition. In Round 3, 71 spellers incorrectly spelled their words which left a total of 188 spellers in the competition.

In Round 2, I correctly spelled miniver, a white fur worn by medieval nobles and used chiefly for robes of state In Round 3, I correctly spelled Guamanian, which means “of or related to the inhabitants of Guam.”

Up to fifty spellers with the highest scores through Round 3 move onto the Finals which occur tomorrow morning and end in the evening. I was ecstatic when my name was announced to be one of 40 Finalists!

Congratulations to all the other Finalists in the Bee and good luck!
