“In an unprecedented move, the Scripps Spelling Bee crowned eight co-champions early Friday morning. After 20 rounds of increasingly difficult words, the 2019 Spelling Bee organizers declared the final eight contestants “octochamps.”
Each winner receives $50,000 and a Scripps Cup made by Cincinnati pottery company Rookwood Pottery. Images from the confetti-strewn competition floor show the winners collectively holding one trophy.
“We will be making more trophies” says Sarah Ditlinger, marketing manager with The Rookwood Pottery Co. “We’ll be doing a rush order to get them in time so that each of the winners can have something special to take home and commemorate their milestone.” ”
