Samia Nawaz, a student at Little Rock's Anthony School, has reached the finals of the National Spelling Bee. Check out Rock Candy for video and more. Finals are on TV tonight.
The bee will be on ABC at 7 p.m.
Her last winning word: pyrrhotism. Rock Candy is particularly well-qualified to define.
UPDATE: She made it to the final 10, but was eliminated.
