Spelling Bee, and "Spellbound"

I like this kid. Watch the first 60 seconds, then skip ahead to the 2:00 mark for the payoff (he spends the time between 1:00 and 2:00 asking for definitions and origins, et al).

Related: I heartily recommend this entertaining and touching documentary about a Spelling Bee: "Spellbound", from 2002.
