Greater Grand Rapids Spelling Bee

March 22, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

In the late fall, students are given a list of words to study at home for the spelling bee. The bee takes place in early January. Students in grades K through 4 challenge their classmates in a single elimination round in their own classrooms until a winner and runner-up can be declared. Students in grades 5 through 8 compete according to the rules for the Scripps National Spelling Bee. The winner and runner up for this age group move on to the regional spelling bee. Homeschool partners are welcome to participate in this event.

Spellers should arrive at 6:00 PM and Bee will start at 6:30 PM. Each regional winner will receive a letter confirming the date, time and place of the Greater Grand Rapids Final Spelling Bee. A response is required.
