Spelling bee competitor is T-A-U-T

first_imgEmma qualified for the competition after winning the Daily News Regional Spelling Bee in March. She nailed the correct spelling for “echolalia,” defined as “the pathological repetition of what is said by other people as if imitating them.” Emma, who is home-schooled, said she is uncertain whether she can repeat her March victory and get her name in the record books. The bee’s first-ever champion was Frank Neuhauser, who spelled “gladiolus” correctly back in 1925. The Scripps Howard spelling bee is the largest, longest-running event of its kind in the nation, though competition was halted for three years during World War II. Emma’s mother, Laura, said the family turned Emma’s win and trip to the nation’s capital into a vacation. But there’s always a little time to study. “She’s been studying about an hour a day, and there’s a lot of us quizzing her,” Manning said. “She wakes up every day and says, `There’s seven days left, there’s six days left. …” The competition will begin Wednesday with the preliminary rounds and the quarterfinals. The semifinals will air live Thursday on ESPN beginning at 7 a.m. PDT. The finals will be broadcast locally from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday on ABC.

With the title as the nation’s top speller up for grabs, Emma Manning heads into the country’s most famous war of the words with quiet reserve. The 14-year-old Pasadena resident will represent the Daily News as she competes against 286 other students in the 80th annual Scripps Howard National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. It doesn’t get any bigger for the best spellers around, but Emma – already in Washington this week with her family – said there’s only so much studying that can be done, and so much luck to go around. “Well, I’m nervous,” she said in a phone interview. “I’ll just do as well as I can. I’d really like to get on TV.” last_img
