FOX19 - While the National Spelling Bee ended in a tie for the 3rd consecutive year, Google is unveiling the most misspelled words by state in America.

Google was able to figure this out by the number of people using search queries beginning with "how to spell" and then the word in question.

"Banana" was the most searched word in Ohio.

People in Kentucky searched for "Maintenance" most often.

And in Indiana, "Desert" was the most searched word.

Some of the repeat offending words include "pneumonia," "canceled," "vacuum" and "gray."
