NATIONAL SPELLING BEE 2008 ROUND TEN
Samia Nawaz cooked on escabeche.
Tia Thomas went right through propylaeum.
Justin Song shattered like glass when contemplating satyagraha. Bailly had real trouble pronouncing it, too! Doesn't look like a challenge opportunity.
And then there were ten. And one Californian.
And then Kyle Mou didn't get into the groove on lapies.
Rose Sloan had the cure for fumagillin.
Sameer Mishra avoided the agony of da fetus with chorion.
Kavya Shivashankar didn't get strung out on martellato.
Sidharth Chand enshrined ziarat.
Catherine (Cat) Cojocaru made a heroic effort only to be defeated by bogatyr.
Scott Remer totally nailed lemel.
Jahnavi Iyer was skinned alive by parfleche.
And now there are seven.
