Spelling Bee 2015 Finale Video

Towards the end of the spelling bee, when it was down to two contestants, I decided it was time to shoot video.

We were sitting towards the back of the area, so you can't hear very well - you'll have to turn your speakers up, probably.

And I didn't zoom in so the picture quality is good but the children are all the way across the room. I think you can still see it is AJ. She's the one in the purple.

Here's the video:

AJ (via my accounts) got a lot of congratulatory Facebook messages, texts and emails. The best one was from her Uncle Rusty, who sent "Congratulations: c o n g r a t u l a t i o n s. Congratulations!"

He was spelling "postpone," which he got right. I just didn't get the camera turned on in time.
