Crawford certificates

These youngsters earned certificates at the Crawford County Spelling Bee.

MANSFIELD – Scrumptiously...a good word to describe the way Maddy Martin spelled at the Crawford County Spelling Bee on Thursday, Jan. 9 at Crestline High School.

With that word, Martin, a seventh grader from St. Bernard Catholic School, became the spelling bee champion. Drake Moyer, an 8th grader from Crestline Exempted Village Schools, was the runner-up with the word Honolulu.
