Eleven students will compete in the 93rd annual Scripps National Spelling Bee in Orlando, Florida, to take home the coveted Scripps Cup Thursday night. The competition has been a feat of orthographic endurance for decades, giving each student a chance at thousands of dollars in prize money.

Last year’s competition was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was the first time the spelling bee was canceled since 1945.

This year, each stage of the Spelling Bee was held remotely but the finalists will convene at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at the Walt Disney Resort. The winner, one of more than 200 students who first entered the competition, will win $50,000.

First Lady Jill Biden will attend this year’s finals. Kevin Negandhi, a co-anchor on the 6 P.M. ET SportsCenter, will host the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Negandhi previously hosted the event in 2016 and 2017. Paul
