TULSA, OK (KSWO)- An Oklahoma girl is headed for the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Edith Fuller, 5, won the Tulsa-area contest by correctly spelling ‘jnana’ and officially became the youngest winner of a regional competition.

In case you don't know what jnana means, Merriam-Webster defines the word as meaning "knowledge acquired through meditation in the Hindu tradition."

The Tulsa World reports Edith beat out more than 50 other elementary and middle school students at the contest.
