Default Youngest Scripps Spelling Bee Participant Homeschooled

6 years old, qualified at 5. Didn't make finals but is the youngest to participate in its history---more interesting to me was her sit down interviews and demeanor. She was able to sit still and have a one on one conversation with an adult without fidgeting, or saying kitschy things she heard on tv or at skoo from 'peers'.

If you see Amish children they have this demeanor as well, but rarely do they speak to outsiders. People who grow up without the tv or school just flat behave differently-good differently-and it's very observable.
