Airel Ruadil had spelled “Freudian” – her last word – correctly, to earn the top spot in the contest. Even at a young age, Airel had demonstrated great interest in reading, and was precocious for her age.

Would Airel Ruadil win the State Spelling Bee Contest? Just as Filipinos all over the world cheered for Jessica Sanchez, Charice, Manny Pacquiao, Arnel Pineda, and X Factor’s Israel winner, Rose Fostanes, they would also be cheering for her and hoping she would win.

Good luck, Airel, bring home the bacon.
