BuzzLine: Channeling Your Pre-Teen Nostalgia

> on May 29, 2014 in National Harbor, Maryland.

Do you know what stichomythia means? How about the origin of the word feuilleton? Can you even pronounce them?

These are the final words Sriram Hathwar, 14, and Ansun Sunjoe, 13, spelled correctly at this year’s Scripps National Spelling Bee to become the first co-champions since 1962. After six rounds of eliminations, the young men had essentially used up every word the competition organizers had available, resulting in a tie.

Their prize? An even split of $30,000. That’s a lot of money for two kids who don’t even have their learner’s permits.

Today’s BuzzLine question is a walk down memory lane to your pre-teen years. In SIX-WORDS, what would your 13 year old self spend $15,000 on?

Maybe…

  • Chunky Doc Martens. Rip-away pants.
  • Save it for college, of course.
  • Meeting my pop idol, Ricky Martin!

Leave your best six-word answer in the comment area, and you could be the winner of a Starbucks gift card. It may not be $15k, but it’s enough for a latte or two!
