South-Central Spelling Bee
Join the fun and excitement of the ACSI Spelling Bee adventure for students in grades 5 through 8. This past year, tens of thousands of students competed for the privilege to represent their schools at the ACSI district spelling bee. Over 14,000 actually made it to those bees; about 370 of them faced off in nine regional events throughout the country, and the top 47 advanced to the ACSI National Spelling Bee.
For more information see Spelling Bee in the South-Central Student Activities Participation Guide.
