WASHINGTON D.C. -- Six-year old Tulsan Edith Fuller correctly spelled two words at the Scripps National Spelling Bee on Wednesday, but didn't advance to the finals.

Fuller correctly spelled "nyctinasty" on Wednesday morning, and then correctly spelling "tapas" on Wednesday afternoon.

Watch a clip of her spelling nyctinasty below:

Even though Fuller correctly spelled her two words, she didn't advance to final rounds on Thursday due to her score on the written test.

Rohan Rajeev, of Edmond, Oklahoma, did advance to the finals, however.

Fuller, who was the youngest ever participant in the National Bee after winning the Green Country Regional Spelling Bee, took part in the vocabulary portion of the Bee on Tuesday.
