Posted by on
This year’s 4-8th grade spelling bee will be held on Friday, January 6th at 2 p.m. at Grace Church in Fayetteville. Generally speaking, students are eligible if they have not yet entered 9th grade, and/or did not reach age 15 by August 31, 2011. (See the full list of eligibility requirements online.) Study tips can be found on the official Scripps website. The winner of this bee may qualify to advance to a regional competition. Please contact Sheri Hampton to register, or with questions. The sign-up deadline is Friday, December 23rd.
The K-3rd spelling bee will be held on January 13th, at 2 p.m. Although students at this level do not go on to another competition, it is excellent experience for those who hope to some day participate in higher grades, as well as a good chance to practice both spelling and public speaking. Please contact Marni Hendrix to register. The deadline to sign up for the K-3rd bee is Friday, Dec. 30th.
There is no charge for NWACHEA members to compete in these bees. For non-members, a $5 participation fee applies.
