LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Hundreds of spellers are trying their best at the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

452 will compete today before they announce the finalists, and only 50 make it through.

Four kids are representing Nevada. Two are from Las Vegas and two are from Northern Nevada, including Morgan Bumgardner. He's making his second appearance at the competition.

All the kids from Nevada made it to round three.

Today they'll spend all day on stage again before the finals tomorrow.
