"Zanja."  That is one word Dakota Jones will likely remember for a long time.  It's the word that knocked him out of the Scripps National Spelling Bee this year.  But he also made it to the top five spellers, out of 275 from around the world.  Dakota Jones talks about his second year in the Bee, how he studies thousands of words, and what was going through his mind in the finals when he heard the word "zanja."
