The 2015 Scripps National Spelling Bee is being held in Washington, D.C., this week, culminating with Thursday night's championship finals. 

The preliminaries test was held on Tuesday, and Round Two and Round Three were both held on Wednesday. A semifinals test was then held on Wednesday night. 

The semifinals will be televised starting at 10 a.m. ET on Thursday, with the finals being held at 8 p.m. ET Thursday. 

Last year, co-winners were declared for the first time since 1962 after both Ansun Sujoe and Sriram Hathwar exhausted the list of words from the championship list.
