So, how’s your spelling?

The 2013 Scripps National Spelling Bee semifinals get underway today and someone’s going to win BIG!

Where would we be without the internet – a source for us to double check our spelling before we send out that email or write a letter. When it comes to spelling errors, don’t worry, you’re not alone.

As the Semifinals get underway on ESPN2 at 1:00p this afternoon, it only makes sense to award the champ with some major green – right? 41 kids advanced for today’s competition, only one will take home the cash:

For the Champ!

  • From Scripps, a $30,000 cash prize and the Scripps National Spelling Bee engraved trophy
  • From Merriam-Webster, a $2,500 U.S. savings bond and a complete reference library
  • From Encyclopædia Britannica, $2,000 of reference works including the Britannica Global Edition, 2013 Encyclopædia Britannica Ultimate Reference Suite DVD-ROM, and a three year membership to Britannica Online Premium.
