FinalistsThe Madawaska School Department had their annual Spelling Bee on January 26th.  In a marathon battle that took 30 rounds to complete, eighth grader Justin Pelletier outlasted Robbie Lausier by spelling the words "potentialities" and then "gesticulations" for the win.  Justin is the reigning Aroostook County champion who came in 3rd in the state wide competition last year.  Both Justin and Robbie will be representing our schools in the regional competition.
