A total of 281 students from around the country will soon put their spelling skills to the test in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, and 13-year-old Jacob Lahti will be among them.

The competition will kick off on May 28 in Washington, D.C., with contestants ranging in age from eight to 14 years old -- and five of them will be traveling from Minnesota.

Lahti, who attends Parkview Center School, told FOX 9 News this is his third year competing, and he was recently recognized by the Roseville School Board for his achievement.

Watch the video to hear Lahti describe his strategy and share the experience of the competition.
