HUNTERSVILLE, NC (WBTV) - Thursday was "National Mississippi Day." It is supposed to be a time to celebrate the state itself.

But we decided to turn the day into a spelling bee and put a class of second graders at Torrence Creek Elementary in Huntersville to the test.

You'll enjoy their adorable attempts at getting it right, and what happens when we place a prank call to our sister station, WLBT in Jackson, Mississippi. We just wanted a little help, and we got it.

Check out the video and enjoy!
