Each February, CESA 6 coordinates a series of regional spelling bees for the top spellers from schools throughout the CESA 6 region. The top spellers from our regional bees advance 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. Registration takes place in the fall.
