Enroll Now for the 2012 Anne Arundel County Spelling Bee
The 21st Century Education Foundation, in partnership with Anne Arundel County Public Schools, will once again bring the opportunity to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee Program to all of our county’s middle school-aged students.
The 2012 Anne Arundel County Spelling Bee will take place on February 25, 2011, at the Board of Education’s Parham Building, located at 2644 Riva Road in Annapolis. The champion of the 2012 County Spelling Bee will win an all-expenses-paid trip to compete in the 2012 Scripps National Spelling Bee. There will be other prizes for our area’s top spellers, including reference books and gift certificates.
In addition to improving students’ spelling skills and increasing their vocabularies, spelling bee participation provides valuable experience in developing poise – a necessary skill for success in public speaking, performing arts, and athletics.
In order students to participate in the 2012 Spelling Bee program, their school must enroll with the Scripps National Spelling Bee at http://spellingbee.com <http://spellingbee.com/> by the October 17 deadline. This will also serve as your registration with the 2012 Anne Arundel County Spelling Bee.
