Minnesota sends a Homeschooler to D.C as Well

March 13, 2012


After correctly spelling “pickelhaube,” “idiopathic” and “pharmacology,” Elise Stahl of Greenfield won the seven-county metro-area regional spelling bee Saturday on the word “remand.”

In the 16th round, Elise, 12, outlasted Eva Beeman Trelstad, 10, of St. Paul and Benjamin Pults, 13, of Maplewood to represent Minnesota at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C., in May.

Elise, who is home-schooled and in the seventh grade, won in front of a capacity crowd at the 3M Auditorium at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul.

That’s two States down, 48 to go!
