Meet The Scripps National Spelling Bee Champion

We’ve never even heard of this word, never mind being able to spell it!   A Pinellas County teenager is the country’s best young speller.  Largo 14-year-old Dev Shah won the Scripps National Spelling Bee last night in Maryland. The winning word was psammophile [[ SAM-o-file ]]. He’s an 8th-grader at Morgan Fitzgerald Middle School, and this was his third time in the competition.  Dev called the moment surreal.
