Approximately 50 students from nine RESA 7 counties will participate in the 2017 Regional Spelling Bee sponsored by the Exponent Telegram.
The event will be hosted by the School of Fine Arts at Fairmont State University. Beginning at 5:45 PM with registration and the Bee starting promptly at 6:30 PM, students from the surrounding counties will be submitted to numerous rounds of intense spelling to determine the 2017 Spelling Bee champion.
The top five winners will receive special recognition and an award during the event, as well as each participant will receive a certificate, T-shirt, and souvenirs. The winner of this year’s program will earn his / her place at the National 2017 Scripps Howard Spelling Bee in Washington D.C. in May.
