National Spelling Bee Winner 2018: Indian-origin Karthik Nemmani won the competition. It was gathered that 16 finalists ranged in age from 11 to 14 and included nine girls and seven boys. The spellers came from all over the US, plus one from Canada. Several had appeared at the national bee in previous years.
Nemmani of McKinney, Texas, was declared champion of the 2018 Scripps National Spelling Bee on Thursday night, winning on the word “koinonia.”
In doing so, the 14-year-old emerged the top speller from a record-shattering 515 contestants at the national bee, compared with 291 last year, after organizers expanded eligibility.
Along the way, he had to outlast a field of 16 finalists who vanquished words such as “Praxitelean,” “ispaghul” and “telyn” – sometimes without batting an eyelash – in a breathtaking show of spelling skill broadcast live on ESPNE
