• Welcome to the opportunity to showcase the academic talents of your students.  Hopefully this year a student from your district will win the all expense paid trip to the National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.  


    The Region Spelling Bee has been scheduled for Tuesday, February 6, 2018, at Lakes Country Service Cooperative in Fergus Falls.  Five students from the Region Spelling Bee will advance to the Multi-Region State Spelling Bee which will be held Tuesday, February 20, 2018, also at Lakes Country Service Cooperative in Fergus Falls. We are looking forward to both of these events.


    The Spelling Bee is geared to students in grades five through eight.  Each school district may once again send one student for every 1-1000 K-12 student population to the regional bee.  The fee for each Region Spelling Bee participant is $100, payable to Lakes Country Service Cooperative.  This fee is separate from the fee which is required by Scripps. If funding is an issue, we encourage you to seek funding from your local PTO or other group that supports your academic endeavors. 


    Your word list and official study booklet as well as other helpful materials may be accessed through the Scripps website: www.spellingbee.com.
