Stuti Mishra smiled in triumph. The Floridian had just been declared the 2011 North South Foundation (NSF) Senior Spelling Bee champion after having remained the only speller to have spelled her word correctly in Round 6 of the final phase.

The 2011 Scripps National Spelling Bee is well underway! After the first two days of competition, the field which once included 275 champion spellers, has narrowed down to 41.
