Faith Baca of Aurora, an eighth-grader at the Rocky Mountain School of Expeditionary Learning, successfully spelled "sempiternal", which means eternal and unchanging.

The national preliminaries had 71 students misspell words, leaving 188 competitors to be whittled down based on written tests. She's one of 40-students vying for the $40,000 grand prize.

No matter. She got the word right and advanced to the finals of the competition.

"I think I'm going to try to aim to get my sister to D.C. next year", Sylvia said.

"A 6-year-old, sitting in one place, not interacting with anybody, for two hours is the equivalent of torture", said her father, Justin Fuller.

"A class of particles able to travel faster than the speed of light, 'tachyon" was an appropriate word for McKeegan, who professed a love of science as well as reading in an interview before she departed for the bee.
