Each spring, the WITF Central PA Spelling Bee invites 5th to 8th grade students from 10 surrounding counties to demonstrate their spelling knowledge as they attempt to make their way to the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Interested schools register with Scripps in the fall and then conduct their own qualifying Spelling Bee at their school. Winners from each of the participating schools compete in a 50 word written test and 50 word vocabulary test held at the WITF Public Media Center. No more than the top 35 spellers participate in the WITF Grand Championship Spelling Bee, an oral spell down which is then broadcast on WITF TV. The winner from that bee qualifies to compete nationally in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
Social media networks such as Facebook,Twitter and Instagram are great ways to share your experience at the Central PA Spelling Bee.
Written test results will be posted to http://www.witf.org/spelling-bee/ in the week following the event. We encourage you to share the results and your photos from the event with your friends and family on your social networks.
We would also love to see your photos from the event! Just post them on our Facebook wall or use the hashtag #witf on your photos on Instagram.
