PHOENIX - Think you’ve got what it takes to compete in a national spelling bee?
Test your spelling chops with this interactive quiz, which will judge if you are tough enough to compete with this year's contestants in the 2013 Scripps National Spelling Bee , set to begin on May 28.
The quiz challenges you with twelve words to spell and an additional vocabulary section.
Vocabulary was added to the Scripps National Spelling Bee for the first time this year, making the bee a bit more difficult for its 281 participants.
Just listen to the audio recording of each word, and then try and spell it. The test will also ask you to define a set of words using multiple choice answers.
Just twelve of the 281 contestants will compete in the Spelling Bee finals, to be aired on ESPN, Thursday May 30 at 5 p.m. Arizona time.
