Are We Running Out of Words For the Scripps National Spelling Bee?

In case you missed the recent Scripps National Spelling Bee, there were duo winners. Why two winners? Well, basically because they ran out of words to spell.

14-year-old Siram Hathwar of Painted Post, New York, and 13-year-old Ansun Sujoe of Fort Worth, Texas ended up sharing the title as the best spellers in the world after they went through the 25 championship round words without determining a winner.

In a qualifying round in Kansas City weeks earlier, the two finalists in that event went through so many words that they had to postpone the event and resume it a few weeks later so they could find more words to use.

Are these young spellers getting so good that this event just might be in jeopardy? Not if I was to enter.
