Boston's annual citywide Spelling Bee this Saturday
March 13, 2018
On Saturday, March 17, Boston’s best youth spellers in grades 4 through 7 will compete in the eleventh annual citywide youth Spelling Bee hosted by Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF), the City of Boston's largest youth and human service agency. The winner will go on to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, the nation's largest and longest-running spelling bee, in Washington, D.C. in May. Each of the spellers won a bee at their school in order to qualify for BCYF's Bee.
Last year the Bee went 14 rounds plus an incredible 13 final rounds before the Championship Round. The 9 year old champion won by spelling "cacophony” correctly. The Bee’s longtime sponsor is the Boston Bruins Foundation.
WHEN: Saturday, March 17, 10 a.m.
WHERE: Boston Public Library Central Branch, Copley Square, Rabb Lecture Hall
