Ah, school competitions. Whether it's music, recitations, or science projects, they are a hotbed of young talent. Sometimes. Other times, you just have to sit back and wonder at the state of the education system that these untalented, awkward youths before you are the very best the modern world has to offer. Usually while laughing and shaking your head.
HOWEVER! There is only one school competition I really care about: The National Spelling Bee. When I was in elementary school, I wanted to win the Spelling Bee SO. BAD. I actually got pretty close, considering I wasn't one of those kids who spent all their free time studying a dictionary (I made it to the final ten of my regional competition one year). I still watch the bee every year, and usually cover the area of the screen where the word it so I can "compete" alongside our nation's youngest and brightest spellers. It's fun. And these movies are pretty fun, too.
