Arlee eighth-grader Deja-Nay Little-Marry is this year’s Lake County spelling champ.

Little-Mary won the county’s online spelling bee, which concluded March 4. She will represent the county at the state spelling bee March 12 at Montana State University in Bozeman.

As Lake County winner, Little-Mary will receive the first-place trophy, which will be presented to her at her school.

The second-place trophy goes to Lyla Wanberg, a seventh grader from St. Ignatius. If Little-Mary is unable to represent Lake County, Wanberg will serve as her replacement.

Lake County’s third-place trophy goes to Tasker Brown, an eighth-grade student from Charlo.
