In his free time, Leonardo plays with his sister and conducts science experiments in his lab. Leonardo participated in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in 2016, and this year he hopes to improve his final ranking.
Not that it's a competition, but seven states have words with less than five letters.
But hey, I bet none of those other states can spell Ashwaubenon or Potawatomi - and we sure as hell know they can't pronounce them.
Una, 13, who lives on a farm near Van Wert, Ohio, is competing in the national bee for the second straight year after repeating as the champion of The Journal Gazette Regional Spelling Bee presented by STAR Financial Bank.
"It might need a couple tweaks".
Naysa Modi, a veteran at age 11 who's already making her third appearance in the bee, stopped Edith and asked her to pose for a picture. "I would have a hard time with that", said Nair, a radiologist who also has a 2-year-old daughter. Spellbound premiered in 2002, a documentary centering on eight contestants in the 1999 Scripp's National Spelling Bee.
"I like co-champions", he said. The super-spellers will be focused and ready to take the stage when the spelling bee resumes Wednesday morning from Washington.More news: Box office battle for Pirates of the Caribbean
Words like "beautiful" and "pneumonia" seem to be among the most commonly searched terms across the country, and words like "sense", "quote" and "nanny" are the most misspelled words in Oregon, Idaho and MS, respectively, the data shows. The test consists of 24 items - 12 spelling and 12 multiple choice vocabulary. (If too many spellers survive Wednesday, the judges will use the test to determine the finalists).
But hey, "tomorrow" is a lot better than not knowing how to spell an easy word like "angel" - looking at you North Carolina.
If a speller walks off before hearing the correct spelling of a word, drink.
Six-year-old Edith, meanwhile, was treated like a celebrity as she walked the halls outside the ballroom.
Noll reported that she will be back onstage at 1 p.m.to begin the third round.
"If you think about it though, that's. wow", he said.
