It's almost time to grab your dictionary.

The 91st Scripps National Spelling Bee is next week, and we featured some talented and smart contestants in the metro Detroit area traveling to compete for gold.

Brendan Pawlicki, Pragya Choudhary, Vikram Goddla and Tanusree Makwana are all excited to compete.

The students and their parents stopped by our studios before heading to the competition.

"It will help me as I grow older, having a big vocabulary," Pragya said. "Even now, as I write essays and stuff for school, I use words that I learn here, makes me look smart."

They all leave Sunday for the competition that starts Tuesday and we wish them the best of luck.
