Two seventh grade students came out on top of Tuesday’s spelling bee at Madawaska Middle/High School.  Taylor Pelletier won the bee, successfully spelling “millinery,” according to MMHS teacher Matt Rossignol.  Hailey Blanchette was the runner-up.

Both students advanced to The County spelling bee held at Fox Auditorium on the campus of the University of Maine at Fort Kent, on Feb. 8th.  Taylor Pelletier then won that competition and will represent Aroostook County at the state spelling bee, with a chance to go to nationals in Washington, D.C.

A total of 13 students from grades six, seven and eight participated in Madawaska’s spelling bee this year. Along with Rossignol, fellow teachers Bonny Tingley, Cai Bouley, and Connie Vanier organized the event. The two judges this year were Vincent Vanier, the department’s technology coordinator, and MMHS teacher Whitney Bouchard. Taylor Pelletier then went on to become the Aroostook County Spelling Bee Champion and will be representing us at the state spelling bee on March 24th in Portland.
