Adam Kleist heads to Scripps Spelling Bee after 70 rounds

Posted: Updated:

It took two dictionaries across 70 rounds in the regional championship before Adam Kleist, an 8th grader from Brainerd, won the trip to the national Scripps Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.

FOX 9 News spoke with Kleist via Skype. Watch the video for more information.

Kleist said he spent months studying words, and having his mother quiz him. So, he put the FOX 9 News anchors to the test himself.
