Summary of Round 2

(Click on the speller's name for a summary of words given.)


Our officials conduct a live review throughout the competition. In the course of that review, the officials determined that speller #30, Max Greenspan, should not have been eliminated during Round Two. The bell rang on Max before he signaled that he had completed his spelling, and his spelling up to the time the bell rang was correct. Max was reinstated to spell in Round Three.

*Spellers 15, 230, and 260 qualified for the Scripps National Spelling Bee but were unable to attend and did not withdraw from the competition. The words they would have been asked to spelled in Round Two are listed in this report alongside a blank entry in the "Spelling Given" column which indicates that no spelling was given because of their absence.
