The finals of the National Spelling Bee were held last week. That's a contest for kids up through eighth grade to see how well they can spell. To win, you've got to spell words most grownups don't know.
The word means a certain kind of painter. The kid who spelled it correctly is 12-year-old Jody-Anne Maxwell, from Jamaica.
She's the first person from outside the U.S. to win the National Spelling Bee.
