England Elementary Spelling Bee 


Elsa England will participate in the National Spelling Bee, a program annually held from local levels up to the level of the Scripps National Spelling Bee which awards cash prize to the winner.

The National Spelling Bee is sponsored by English-language newspapers and educational foundations; it is also broadcast on ESPN. Since 2006, the National Spelling Bee's championship rounds have been broadcast on ABC live. In 2005, contestants came from the Bahamas, Jamaica, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Canada, New Zealand, Puerto Rico and a German military base, as well as the United States.

This is how it works for our school: All 4th and 5th graders study 100 spelling words (provided in their Thursday folders). Students improve his or her spelling skills and our school conducts a preliminary test to identify qualifying children for the school wide spelling bee contest.
