6th grader wins Keystone Spelling Bee
She won in the 19th round by correctly spelling “rhetorical.” Congrats also to runner up, Zoe, an eighth grader.
Other words: irregular, prioress, brocade and perdition. In addition to the spelling words, the Bee now includes vocabulary questions.
Victoria now must take an online test to qualify for the regional Bee on March 26. After years of being sponsored by the San Antonio Express-News, it’s now sponsored by the Brauntex Theatre in New Braunfels.
The winner of the regional spelling bee will advance to the Scripps National Spelling Bee, which runs May 29 – June 3.
Congratulations to Victoria and good luck!
