Congrats to Arvind Mahankali for winning the 2013 Scripps National Spelling Bee!

Arvind is an eighth grader at Nathaniel Hawthorne Middle School in Bayside, Queens. Arvind will receive $30,000 cash and a $2,500 savings bond.

Check out when he gets his last word. Looks like he knows he’s got it, doesn’t he?

And how about that American Idol/Miss America confetti at the end! Good for you, Arvind!
