DePue Student Wins Spelling Bee

Posted by wlpo on February 24, 2010

A new spelling bee champ has been crowned in Bureau County.

DePue Junior High School 7th grader Jake Quesse won the spelling bee crown yesterday by correctly spelling “necessary” and “predicate”.  Luke Lee-Brown finished in 2nd place.  He’s from Ladd.

With the win, Quesse advances to the Journal Star Grand Final Spelling Bee March 19th in Peoria.  He’s eligible to defend his title next year being only a 7th grader.

Twenty-four students from a dozen schools competed in yesterday’s spelling bee.
