Collin Shea of Mayfield competes in Round 2 on stage at the Scripps National Spelling Bee on Wednesday

A sixth-grade student from Fresno, California, Ananya won the 90th Scripps National Spelling Bee by spelling "marocain", (French word for a dress fabric).

According to the Scripps National Spelling Bee, Ananya likes to volunteer because she likes to help people.

Vinay takes home a $40,000 cash prize and trophy, along with a $2,500 US savings bond and complete reference library, a trip to New York City and Hollywood.

"It's like a dream come true, I'm so happy right now", said speller 264, Ananya Vinay.

England win the toss and invite Bangladesh to bat in opening match
England captain Eoin Morgan made a decision to field first in their Champions Trophy opener against Bangladesh at The Oval. As for the bowling for England , Liam Plunkett bagged four scalps, conceding 59 runs in his quota of four overs.

After failing to break into the top 50 last year she came back this year with a vengeance and a fool-proof strategy.

This was the second consecutive trip to the national spelling competition for Mira, who advanced by wining regional competition in February.

That's what one proficient speller tasted during the 90th Scripps National Spelling Bee on June 1. What a fantastic performance! Co...

Ananya appeared Friday morning on CNN, where hosts Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota asked her to spell the word that the president posted in an aborted Tweet this week.

"The U.S. reneging on its commitment to the Paris Agreement renders it a rogue state on the worldwide stage", Robinson said . They said the pair had also agreed on the importance of continued cooperation on wider energy issues.

Competitors age 6 to 15 emerged from early spelling bees involving more than 11 million youths from all 50 USA states, U.S. territories from Puerto Rico to Guam, and several countries, from Jamaica to Japan.

"She had a deep passion for reading", said her father, Vinay Sreekumar. But she also said he recovered from it, stating, "He's good now". A field narrowed to 40 by two rounds on stage and a written test.

Ananya never looked all that impressed by the words she was given.

The stress of competing against the dictionary was etched on many spellers' faces as they took their turn at the microphone and in front of the television cameras. She wins Dollars 40,000 in cash, a trophy and other prizes, the report said. Scripps added a tiebreaker test this year, to prevent further ties, but it was not needed. Thankfully, we've now returned to ensuring one of two children is really sad, as the 2017 Spelling Bee had a single victor, no tiebreaker rounds needed.
