• 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 will be held on Tuesday, February 4, 2020, at Lakes Country Service Cooperative in Fergus Falls.  Five students from the Region Spelling Bee advanced to the Multi-Region State Spelling Bee which was held Tuesday, February 18, 2020, also at Lakes Country Service Cooperative in Fergus Falls. 


    Congratulations to Gavin Starr, an 8th grader from Lester Prairie School, on winning the 2019 Multi-Region State Spelling Bee and advancing to the National Spelling Bee!

    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 $110, 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.
