It took about an hour to crown a Spelling Bee winner out of the 27 students who competed in the event on Feb. 5, at the New Richmond Middle School.
Maggie Marx, sixth-grade, was the first place winner and moves on to compete again at the regional spelling bee.
Katey Eickhoff, sixth-grade, finished in second place, followed by Nathan Zander and Cole Birch, eighth-grade, who tied for third place.
Marx won by spelling the word “prognosticate” correctly.
