11 Year Old Spells Her Way To The Top

A Wichita Falls Elementary School student is hoping her spelling and learning skills will help her get the top prize at The National Spelling Bee Competition.

Manasvi Reddy has been preparing for weeks since winning the regional competition in March.
"We've used different flash cards and just think of different ways to remember the words, like making up  funny sayings." said Manasvi's mother, Aparna Reddy.

The National Spelling Bee is not just about spelling, it's also about knowing the meaning of the words.

While Masavi is eager and ready to go, her dad and mom are hoping this will be a great life experience.
The family will travel to Washington D.C. for the competition that begins May 28, 2014.
