In order to participate in the Regional Spelling Bee event in Redwood Falls, SCHOOLS MUST REGISTER WITH BOTH
SWWC SC and with Scripps National Spelling Bee. www.spellingbee.com
Schools then hold a Local Bee in each school building (elementary and middle) with those winners competing in a District Bee prior to January 22. The top one or two winners are then sent to the Regional Bee. The number of students attending the Regional Bee from each district is determined by the size of your school. One speller per 1,000 students based on a K-12 enrollment. For rules and procedures, see the handbook on the right.
There can be NO Livestreaming or video taping of the Spelling Bee Competitions. The words that are provided by Scripps are used all around the country; therefore we do not want to give others an unfair advantage.
