Mackenzie Chiodi wins spelling bee


Eighth-grader Mackenzie Chiodi took home first place in the Pequot Lakes Middle School Spelling Bee, winning by spelling “incarceration” correctly.

The spelling bee was hard-fought by all contestants Friday, Feb. 8, but the race for runner-up was especially lively. Keegan Severance and Kaitlyn Deneau battled it out through several rounds, often seeking to spell lengthy, obscure words.

In the end, eighth-grader Severance took home second place by spelling “dormition.”
