The Spelling Bee is back this Friday! We all have Spelling Bee fever here. Perhaps you could call it "Spelling Bee-ver," but that, frankly, sound dirty. Let us help you get in the spirit!
Now, let's see them at play!
This year the spellers and their parents all get t-shirts with letters on them, which made for some spelling related humor and patriotism at the annual pre-Bee barbecue.
There is more to a spelling bee than just cookouts and wordplay. It's also a chance to tell your parents a little something about yourself.
Now, from the outside the Scripps National Spelling Bee seems like the kind of place that nerds gather to prove who that year's Highlander is. But think about it from the stand point of a kid in the competition! This is foreign soil, with a whole new set of young ladies to put the mack on. Time to look sharp!
