We're so happy!

Just like Lily Tomlin's character in Grace and Frankie, the Scripps National Spelling Bee is one of our favorite times of the year.

The Hunger Games of language arts had its final on Thursday and, just like last year, the Bee ended in a tie after 20 rounds when the judges ran out of contest-approved words!

The winners were none other than 13-year-old Vanya Shivashankar and 14-year-old Gokul Venkatachalam, both of whom have competed in the Bee since 2012.

And you may actually recognize Vanya from another show — She was was the winner (and our fav) of Lifetime's Child Genius competition this season where she beat out that 11-year-old who just graduated from college.

Prior to the 2014 event, a draw hadn't happened for Scripps since 1962 — and now it's happened twice in a row!

Congratulations. C-O-N-G-R-A-T-U-L-A-T-I-O-N-S. Congratulations, Vanya and Gokul!

Filed under: Justin TimberlakeCute Kidz

justin timberlake was the 1995 memphis spelling bee champion

Long before Justin Timberlake brought SexyBack or said Bye Bye Bye to NSYNC, he was just your average everyday kid. Who also happened to be a Mouseketeer.

Ok, so his childhood was just a tad different from ours! But here's something you probably didn't know about JT. He was the 1995 Memphis spelling bee CHAMPION!!

Meet The 6-Year-Old Spelling Bee Genius

Filed under: Cute KidzEducational

Craaazy Smart!

After participating (and kicking older kids' asses) in spelling bees around Virginia, this 6-year-old is on her way to the National Spelling Bee!

Lori Anne Madison started competing in spelling bees at age 3, and now soon she will be the youngest person to EVER compete in the national spelling bee.

Madison is brilliant, super adorbz and even though she says she wants to be an astrobiologist, we're pretty sure she's gonna end up ruling a large portion of the world.
