Speling Be Chimp
    (April 2011- )
    Won the 2017 Scripps Green County [Oklahoma] Spelling Bee
    Qualified for the Scripps National Spelling Bee
    At the age of six years 1 month, became the youngest contestant in the history of the Scripps National Spelling Bee
    The trophy she won for the regional spelling bee was almost as tall as her.
    Scripps dubbed her a ‘spellebrity.’
    Although she spelled both her words correctly on the first day of the Nationals, she failed to advance to the next round due to a poor score on a written test.
    Frankly, even before spellcheckers became ubiquitous, the ability to remember the spelling of obscure words was more a novelty than a useful skill.
    Her parents discovered her talent when they were quizzing her on spelling and asked her to spell ‘restaurant’ – a word she had not studied – and she nailed it.
    She competed against children more than twice her age.
    She had the poise of an adult.
    Let’s see you correctly spell ‘jnana’ or ‘nyctinasty.’
