>>The 2005 U.S. Spelling Bee championship took place in Washington D.C.
last week. In this annual contest, kids compete by guessing the spellings
of the pronounced words and the winner is determined by elimination.<<
I don't think the kids compete by 'guessing'. It's a lot of hard work and studying.
