Spelling Bee Fainted

Spelling Bee


Congratulation to Ms. Katherine Close, who just won the Scripps National Spelling Bee last week.

After seven rounds of head-to-head battle, Katharine "Kerry" Close, a 13-year-old eighth-grader from Spring Lake, beat out Finola Hackett, 14, from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, to bring the championship title to New Jersey.
Close will take home more than $42,000 in cash and prizes. She is the first-ever winner from the Garden State. [

However, it was not that easy to take part and win in the competition. The contestants are often under too much pressure. Here is a good example where a someone fainted during the contest.
