Bruhat Soma emerged as the champion of the 2024 Scripps National Spelling Bee.

He spelled a total of 29 words correctly during the tiebreaker round, showcasing his exceptional linguistic skills.

His winning word was “abseil,” which refers to a descent in mountaineering using a rope looped over a projection above.

Before the competition, Bruhat was already considered unbeatable by his competitors, the dictionary, and lightning-round challenges.

He had previously won three consecutive bees before participating in the prestigious Scripps event.

As the winner, Bruhat received a trophy and more than $50,000 in cash and prizes.

His victory is a testament to the talent and dedication of Indian-American students in spelling competitions.

Bruhat’s achievement adds to the legacy of children from the small ethnic community who excel in spelling bees.
