Regional Spelling Bee

  • spelling bee
    Help your students, in grades 5-8, build confidence, work towards a goal and improve their spelling by participating in the Spelling Bee. It helps promote literacy, aid children in learning concepts, improving comprehension and can develop study skills. Register your school today to give your students the challenge of spelling words.
    The Spelling Bee is a series of spelling contests starting at your local school and district. The winner from the district will advance to the Regional Bee in Redwood Falls. The four regional winners will then participate in the Multi-Region State Spelling Bee in Fergus Falls. That winner will then advance to the National Spelling Bee. The champion of our Multi-Region Spelling Bee will win an all-expenses-paid trip (including one adult) to compete in the 2020-21 Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, DC.
