Anirudh Kathirvel, a nine-year-old Indian-origin boy, has been crowned champion of the first ‘The Great Australian Spelling Bee’ contest, winning $50,000 dollars scholarship. Kathirvel, born in Melbourne to a Tamilian couple,  said his favourite word to spell was ‘euouae’ as he liked the structure of the word as it was the longest word with consecutive vowels.
