After 18 rounds of spelling, a Schuylerville seventh-grader is moving on to the Capital Region Spelling Bee. Rebecca Brandt was one of nearly 40 Schuylerville students who participated in the district’s annual spelling bee on Thursday, Dec. 8. Brandt finished in first place, spelling the word tremulous correctly. Seventh-grader Anna Lail took second place and fourth-grader Grace Lail finished third. Brandt will compete against more than 100 students from more than 60 districts at the 35th Annual Capital Region Spelling Bee at Proctors Theatre in Schenectady in February.
