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 top three finishers at the state spelling bee will represent Wisconsin at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C.

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