On Tuesday, January 11, forty-one students from Robertsville Middle School participated in the 2022 Spelling Bee. Sixth grader Quentin Delmau won the contest by correctly spelling the word aversion in the tenth round of the bee. David Schlesser, also a sixth grader, placed second.

On Wednesday, January 12, fifty-five students competed in the Jefferson Middle School spelling bee. After twenty-three rounds, 6th grader Vansh Patel correctly spelled the word compassion to win the bee. 8th grader Patrick Kerekes finished second.

Good luck to Quentin and Vansh as they prepare to compete in the regional spelling bee later this spring.
