Champion Checklist - Take the Preliminaries Sample Test

Take the Sample Test

On Tuesday of Bee Week, you will take the Preliminaries Test in the Maryland Ballroom with your fellow spellers. To prepare you for this first part of the national competition, we have put together a sample test to help you become familiar with the test format. We have designed this Sample Test so that you can print out the forms and practice until you feel comfortable with the format. Listen to the sound file and practice as many times as you need!

Teacher Feature - Loretta Riley

Behind every great student is a great teacher. These teachers make learning fun by thinking outside the box and creating classroom experiences that resonate with their students. They serve many roles in their schools, as spelling coaches, school bee coordinators and judges; more often than not, they are motivators who encourage their students to be the best they can be. In the “Teacher Feature,” we celebrate these educators and their commitment to their students' education.
