An 8th Grader From Illinois Is Going to the Spelling Bee Finals

An 8th grader from Illinois is heading to the finals of the National Scripps Spelling Bee:

An Illinois 8th grader is going to the finals of the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Avani Joshi is from Roscoe, near Rockford. He correctly spelled "lophophytosis," which is a disease that affects owls, in Sunday night's semifinals.

In one round of the competition, students not only spelled words, but had to select their meaning from a list of three choices. Last year's competition was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Avani Joshi is one of 11 students who will compete in the finals of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. They will air July 8 on ESPN2.

So cool!
