SPELLING BEE WINNER
Twelve-year-old Ananya Vinay has won the 90th Scripps National Spelling Bee. The sixth-grader from Fresno, California, won by spelling ``marocain,' a French word for dress fabric made of ribbed crepe. She gets more than $40,000 in cash and prizes. Runner-up Rohan Rajeev missed the word ``marram,' a Scandinavian-derived word for beach grass. Ananya's victory was the first time since 2013 that the bee has declared a single champion. It ended in a tie for three consecutive years. The bee added a written tiebreaker test this year, but it didn't come into play.

THE SCRIPPS NATIONAL SPELLING BEE TOOK PLACE THIS WEEK IN A SUBURB OF WASHINGTON,D.C. THE COMPETITION PITTED THE COUNTRY'S BEST SPELLERS, AND SOME FROM CANADA AND JAPAN, AGAINST EACH OTHER AND CHALLENGED THEM TO SPELL INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT WORDS.

AMONG THE CONTESTANTS WERE 6 STUDENTS FROM MINNESOTA INCLUDING BRIANA JOSEPH FROM FAIRMONT.
