Lori Anne Madison, 6, steals the show in Round Two of the National Spelling Bee

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Lori Anne is speller 269 during the Scripps National Spelling Bee, and so the first time on stage at the bee likely couldn’t have come soon enough for a bubbly 6-year-old who sometimes, she and her mother say, can’t sit still. She’s the youngest ever to compete in the bee – but it didn’t seem that way Wednesday.

She asked for the definition of the word. Then she rapidly spelled “dirigible.” She got it right and quickly took her seat.

Read it all.
