Six-Year-Old Competes in National Spelling Bee
Lori Anne Madison is the youngest child ever to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, at just six years old. INSIDE EDITION has the story.
Little Lori Anne Madison is a remarkable six-year-old who will leave you spellbound.
Madison is the youngest child ever to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.
She actually had to lower the microphone to give her answer when it was her turn, but when it came to spelling, this pint-sized home-schooled second grader from northern Virginia stood tall.
She spelt "Dirigible," without a problem. Sadly, her Cinderella story ended in the next round, with a word you don't hear every day, "Ingluvies."
But she took the loss like a champ.
"Everyone's proud of me that I did such a great job and I almost made it," she said at a press conferance after the competition.
Meanwhile, the contest goes on with kids from across the nation spelling words you probably never knew existed!
Whoever wins this contest takes home a $30,000 top prize and rest assured that little Madison is sure to r-e-t-u-r-n next year.
