On 10 July 2021 NPR (National Public Radio) reported: For the first time in the Scripps National Spelling Bee's 96-year history, an African American has taken home the top prize. Zaila Avant-garde, 14, an eighth-grader from Harvey, Louisiana, won the prestigious competition -- and $50,000. She is the competition's second Black champion. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of education, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

'It made me feel really proud,' she said after clinching the victory. 'I'm really hoping lots of little brown girls all over the world and stuff are really motivated to try out spelling and stuff because it's really a fun thing to do and it's a great way to kind of connect yourself with education, which is super important.'

She crushed the competition with the winning word, 'murraya,' a genus of tropical Asiatic and Australian trees, and celebrated with a twirl onstage under confetti. But not before she got the judges to crack smiles by sneaking in a Bill Murray joke.
