SPELLING BEE GENERIC

 Fourteen-year-old Karthik Nemmani of McKinney, Texas, has won the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
  
Karthik spelled the word “koinonia” correctly to become the champion late Thursday. He also spelled “haecceitas” correctly after seventh-grader Naysa Modi from Frisco, Texas, missed the word “Bewusstseinslage” in the final round.
  
The champion of the 93-year-old competition will receive more than $42,000 in cash and prizes.
