A new spelling bee champion was crowned on Thursday as Snigdha Nandipati won the National Spelling bee.

Nandipati, a 14-year-old from San Diego, won the Scripps National Spelling Bee after spelling the word "guetapens." According to CBS News, Nandipati said that she had seen the word before and wanted to get as much information as she could before she starting spelling.

“I knew it. I’d seen it before,” said Nandipati to CBS. “ I just wanted to ask everything I could before I started spelling.”

Nandipati had been a semi-finalist the year before.

Stuti Mishra of West Melbourne, Florida took second place after he misspelled “schwarmerei” meaning unbridled enthusiasm. Third place went to Arvind Manhankali from New York, finishing third for the second straight year after he misspelling “schwannoma”.
