Do you have what it takes to win the Scripps National Spelling Bee?
Each of the words in this quiz was a championship-winning word in the last 15 years. (The real championship spellers, of course, do not have the advantage of multiple choice. Also, they are children.) Where possible, the audio was taken from the spelling bee footage itself; in cases where it was not, we used clips from the dictionary or an online pronunciation service.

In an earlier version of this quiz, there wasn't a correct option for number 7. (Clearly, we wouldn't have made the cut.)
