"7 Canadians advance in U.S. spelling bee": in the semifinals are favourites Tia Thomas and Matthew Evans, a pair of home-schooled 13-year-olds who renewed a friendly but competitive rivalry that began in 2004. Matthew and Tia were finalists last year, but another returning finalist, Cody Wang, was eliminated in the quarterfinals.
Since 1925, young spellers from across the United States have gathered in Washington DC for the Scripps National Spelling Bee. How much do you know about the history of spelling bees and their effects on culture? Some movie spoilers included.
