A record number of eight children have been crowned co-champions in the US of the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
On Thursday night the finalists, aged 12 to 14, spelled their way through 20 tough rounds of the competition.
Organisers eventually announced that it was a tie, as they had run out of words that were challenging enough.
With six of the winners being Indian-American, it is the 12th year in a row that the bee has been won by children of Indian descent.
This year’s contest was held in Oxon Hill in Maryland. It began on 26 May and lasted for three days.
Saketh, 13, told Associated Press: “I don’t know if I would’ve won if they kept going. I was super tired because it was like [midnight], and I was exhausted.”
Each will now receive a prize of $50,000 (£39,700), a $2,500 savings bond and reference books.
Among the words they spelled correctly were omphalopsychite, a person who stares at their navel to induce a mystical trance, and auftaktigkeit, a musical principle where all musical phrases begin on an upbeat.
There were quite a few tough medical terms in there too – including erysipelas, an infection that causes red rashes on the skin, and geeldikkop, a type of plant poisoning that can affect sheep.
The Scripps National Spelling Bee was started in 1925. However, this is the 92nd event because there were no competitions held in 1943, 1944 or 1945.

He, in a letter, addressed to the Education Directorate in the area said the safety of students and teachers attending the ceremony cannot be guaranteed following the clashes recorded in 2018 which resulted in the death of three persons.
The Traditional Council also added that they do not have hope in the Municipal Police Command and the Municipal Chief Executive hence the directive to the schools not to attend the ceremony.
The schools which boycotted the parade were: Our Lady of Providence SHS at Kwasibourkrom, Presby JHS, Japekrom, Presby Primary, Japekrom, Methodist JHS, Japekrom, Methodist Primary, Japekrom, Islamic JHS, among others.
When the MCE for Jaman South, Alhaji Abuu was contacted, he declined commenting on the issue.
However, the Secretary of the Japekrom Traditional Council, Nana Sei in an interview said, “It is good they complied with our directive to boycott the 6th March Parade.”
“We as Traditional Council took the decision because of the concerns from most parents in the area, security in the area has not improved since the incident happened,” he added.

The National Commission on Civic Education [NCCE] has called on Ghanaians to be appreciative of the progress made in sustaining peace and unity across the country since independence.
According to the NCCE, 62 years of independence is a rather great achievement and it is important for citizens to appreciate the progress the country has made.
In a press release signed by the Chairperson of the Commission, Madam Josephine Nkrumah, the theme for the country’s 62nd Independence Day celebration – ‘Celebrating Peace and Unity’ – is particularly relevant in this time where the country has experienced some security threats with the emergence of political militia groups.
“Celebrating Peace and Unity’, our 62nd anniversary theme could not be more timely. At a time when Ghana continues to witness rampant security threats with the existence of political party militias, the theme reinforces the need for Ghanaians to appreciate our enviable peace and stability.”
“For the first time our independence dayis being celebrated out of the country’s capital, Accra and will be observed in Tamale in the Northern Region. The historic peace in Dagbon after many years of conflict goes to emphasize the need for regional peace and stability as a necessary pillar for national development and further consolidates our growing democracy. Citizens within other regions of the country must therefore seek to promote peace and cohesion.”
The NCCE also noted that the peaceful installation of the new Yaa-Na of Dagbon Abukari Mahama also emphasizes the need for peace and stability as national development thrives in such environments.
Below is the full statement from the NCCE
The National Commission for Civic Education, NCCE, wishes all citizens of Ghana a happy Independence Day Anniversary. Ghana’s 62nd Anniversary is a significant milestone and the Commission calls on Ghanaians to celebrate the birth of Mother Ghana and her total liberation from colonial rule.
Sixty-two (62) years of Independence is a great achievement and it is important for citizens to appreciate how far our nation, Ghana, has journeyed. It therefore behoves all citizens to reflect on the relevance of the day and what it represents in our national life.
The NCCE on Independence Day urges all citizens to reclaim and uphold the Ghanaian values and identity that best define us as a people. The values of peace, unity, tolerance, honesty amongst others. Ghana has always been seen as a peace loving country. The values of peace and unity are values our forefathers lived to make Ghana a better and peaceful place for future generations. As a country let’s begin to revive and restore these values as we celebrate 62 years of independence and beyond.
Celebrating Peace and Unity’, our 62nd anniversary theme could not be more timely. At a time when Ghana continues to witness rampant security threats with the existence of political party militias, the theme reinforces the need for Ghanaians to appreciate our enviable peace and stability.”
“For the first time our independence dayis being celebrated out of the country’s capital, Accra and will be observed in Tamale in the Northern Region. The historic peace in Dagbon after many years of conflict goes to emphasize the need for regional peace and stability as a necessary pillar for national development and further consolidates our growing democracy. Citizens within other regions of the country must therefore seek to promote peace and cohesion.
The NCCE reminds Ghanaians to preach the values of peace and unity in our homes especially to the youth of this country. In unity, peace and development, we would stand great and strong amongst nations. The citizenry including political parties, political actors, religious fraternity, security services, Civil Society Organisations, trade unions and the media must redirect their actions and energies into projecting peace and unity on their platforms. This will promote peaceful coexistence among citizens for a great Ghana.
The power of oneness promotes national stability, tolerance and cohesion. Happy 62nd Independence Anniversary to the people of Ghana.
