Nicolas Manfred spelled the word "quinine" to win Friday night's Champlain Valley Educational Services Regional Spelling Bee, which was co-sponsored by the Press-Republican. The victory qualifies the Moriah Central School student for the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. His travel expenses and those of a chaperone will be covered by the newspaper and the North Country Parents group.
