Spelling Bee

Grades: 3rd - 8th 

The spelling bee competition is designed to help students improve their spelling and vocabulary development. The series of spelling contests starts at the school and district levels, with winners advancing to regional events. Regional winners may participate in the Multi-Region State Spelling Bee and the winner advances to the National Spelling Bee. All schools wishing to participate in the Central Minnesota Regional Spelling Bee must enroll with Scripps National Spelling Bee for District materials and with Resource Training and Solutions for the Regional Spelling Bee.
