Lexington student advances in Scripps National Spelling Bee

Lexington student advances in Scripps National Spelling Bee

The finals are now being broadcast on ESPN 2.

Daniel Chen, of Chino Hills, on Thursday correctly spelled his first word, "perinephric", but incorrectly spelled "carosella", a type of fennel, by adding an "I" instead of the "O".

There was no "ding", the sound of a bell signifying a misspelling and the end to his second consecutive trip to the national Bee. All 291 spellers then had the chance Wednesday to compete in rounds two and three on the stage.

When about only 10 spellers remain, the competition will pause until the primetime finale. Only those who spell their word correctly move onto the next round. Many also speak or study 38 different languages, including Bengali, Filipino, Mandarin, Korean, Urdu and American Sign Language. All the spellers took it in the same room at the same time. The final 15 features eight boys and seven girls from across the United States, including three from Texas. Music runs through these spellers' veins.

Daniel Doudna, 13, of Fairbanks, Alaska, said it was "amazing" to be the third child in his family to attend the national Bee.

Wang said the competition is tough because numerous kids have prepared for the nationals since they were very young. Her parents got permission from Scripps to let Edith spend some of her time offstage while waiting to spell.
