  1. Spelling bee

    A spelling bee is a competition in which contestants are asked to spell words. The concept is thought to have originated in the United States, and spelling bee events, along with variants, are now also held in some other countries around the world which use imperfect writing systems. The first winner of an official spelling bee was Frank Neuhauser, who won the 1st National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. in 1925 at age eleven.
