Spelling News

As promised, we're doing three Game Time games today. And here is the first - a round of the PSB Original Game, Headliners!

You know how to play, just give your headline to the following news story:

13-year old Kansas girl Kavya Shivashankar won the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. by correctly spelling the word Laodicean, meaning "lukewarm or indifferent in religion or politics," in Round 16.

Sidharth Chand was last year's runner up and the favorite to win this year, but he misspelled 'apodyterium' to come in a tie for 8th place and will not be eligible to compete again due to age requirements.

Broadcast on ESPN during the day and live on ABC in prime time, the Spelling Bee has grown in popularity over recent years. To make it more entertaining, the Spelling Bee committee decided to make the sentences more humorous than in previous years when the spellers ask for the word in a sentence.

And here's our headline:
Kavya Kaptcha's Krown
