Spelling Bee Update

Emily Choi

The people with the best spelling bee test scores will be going to this year’s District Spelling Bee. The Spelling Bee will be held at Beatty School, at 6:00. It will be on Thursday, December 19. The people who pass will move on to county, then state, and then national. The runner up of Nationals wins a medal and $25,000. The winner of the National Spelling Bee wins $50,000; the Scripps National Spelling Bee engraved trophy; $2,500 cash prize, and a reference library from Merrian-Webster. Last year’s spelling bee winner was Karthik Nemmani.  Good luck to the BP contestants!
