Sarah Marsh, an eighth-grade student from Johnson Junior High School in Arbuckle, won the 2012 Colusa County Junior High Spelling Contest.
The contest was held March 12 in the Morse Conference Room of the Colusa County Library in Colusa.
The runner-up was Brett Lilly, an eighth-grader at Williams Junior High School.
Both students advanced to the state competition, which is scheduled for May 12 at Miller Creek School in San Rafael.
Colusa County Superintendent of Schools Kay Spurgeon was the Spelling Master for the written contest. The event, which included 10 competitors and 32 words, ended after Marsh correctly spelled "chronic."
Spurgeon congratulated the winners and praised all participants for their commitment to high scholastic achievement.
