Spelling Bee

Each February CESA #1 coordinates a series of regional spelling bees for the top spellers from schools throughout Southeastern Wisconsin.

The champion from each of the five regional bees advances to the Badger State Spelling Bee in Madison sponsored by the Wisconsin State Journal

The state spelling bee champion represents Wisconsin in the Scripps National Spelling Bee held in Washington D.C.

Students in grades 3-8 in participating districts are eligible to compete.
