The Telegram is sponsoring a spelling competition that engages young people in an exciting pop-culture phenomenon that not only encourages spelling proficiency, but also inspires fun, spirit and sportsmanship. This program is open to students in grades 4 to 8 and is divided into four stages:
- Classroom spelling bees
- School level spelling bee
- The Telegram St. John’s Regional Spelling Bee
- Scripps National Spelling Bee (in the US)
MDJH is offering this program to our grade 7 and 8 students. Within the next 2 weeks, English teachers will be administering an optional, written Spelling Bee in their classrooms. The winner of each class will compete in a school-level, verbal Spelling Bee. The winner at this level will represent the school in the regional spelling bee.
For further information and for extra study materials, please go to www.spellingbee.com or ask your English teacher.
