Her winning word means "having the hair wavy," but what 14-year-old Sukanya Roy really spelled last night was V-I-C-T-O-R-Y.

During the final round of the 84th Scripps National Spelling Bee Thursday night, there were just two remaining contestants: 12-year-old Canadian Laura Newcombe and the USA's Roy, of South Abington Township, Pennsylvania.

Roy ended up taking home the gold after correctly spelling “Cymotrichous" which won her a trophy and more than $40,000 in cash in prizes.

A much easier word to spell—Texture!—will again be the focus of a special supplement in our September issue, produced by MODERN and The cover story will help you learn how to be a cymotrichous (okay, let’s just call it “curly hair”) specialist.
