What are the rules of the Scripps Howard National Spelling Bee?

To answer this question, we must defer to giving you the Scripps Howard website address for the National Spelling Bee, which outlines both local and finals rules: http://www.spellingbee.com/rulesloc.shtml, and http://www.spellingbee.com/rulesdc.shtml. The documentary feature Spellbound, about contestants in the National Spelling Bee, was nominated for an Oscar in 2003, and ESPN's telecast of that event in 2003 actually outdrew some National Hockey League playoff games in the ratings.
