Other contestants from Libby Public Schools included: Leah Rusdal and Colter Anderson, fourth grade; Cole Petty, fifth grade; Charlie Weber and Karma Laveway, sixth grade; as well as Sam Brumbaugh, Raevynn Voss and Peyton Geer from Libby Middle School.

During the competition, the students spelled words such as: guava, penitent, cherished, sturgeon, damask, gangrene, hibiscus, pegasi, vocational, eclair, mutton chops, consonants, inertia, haberdashery, piedmont, portentously, gaiters, and emaciated.

Libby Public Schools extended a hearty “Congratulations” to Lamere and his teacher, Jessica Thoeny.
