Local Girl Spells in National Competition

Can you spell "sententious" or "perciatelli"? Neetu Chandak of Seneca Falls can. The 13-year-old correctly spelled both words during the Scripps National Spelling Bee semi-finals earlier today.

Chandak is not new to the spelling bee world , this is her third appearance in the national finals. She also excels in math and music and has participated in regional math competitions and plays the clarinet in an all-county band. Chanak's favorite sports include badminton, basketball, hiking, and swimming. She also collects coins and rocks and speaks fluent Hindi.

Chandak aspires to become an architect or interior designer.
