Scott Remer had an amazing experience placing 4th in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in 2008 after making it to 34th in his first year of competition in 2007. He has always loved language, reading, and the power of the written and spoken word. After aging out of the NSB, he took it upon himself to write the most comprehensive guide to preparing for the Bee to help other champions succeed. He finished the book when he was in tenth grade, while taking such challenging subjects as AP Comparative Government and Mandarin Chinese. Scott lives in Beachwood, Ohio with his proud parents, his younger brother, Alex, and his cats, Kinsman and Tiberius. He enjoys participating and placing in essay contests and recently won a $10,000 grant to make his school district more environmentally sustainable. He is active in many extracurricular activities like Ecology Club, Debate, Science Olympiad, and Academic Challenge. He does not know where he wants to attend college, but knows he would like to volunteer at the National Spelling Bee and hopes to be a word panelist someday.
