Some students in Pittsfield took their spelling game to the next level on Thursday.

The top spellers from the two middle schools took part in the grand, citywide spelling bee at the Pittsfield Library.

The top speller for each school will go on to regionals.

The top winner for Pittsfield won a trophy and a $250 cash prize for them, and another for their class.

Daniel Lin from Herberg Middle School won with the word “urchins.”

NewsChannel 13’s Kumi Tucker was guest speaker at the event.
