Spelling Bee

The Park Hill School District spelling bee will be Saturday, Feb. 24, 2018, at Park Hill High School. Park Hill is now sponsoring our own spelling bee, so the winner of the district bee will advance to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Maryland.

Students in fifth through eighth grades may sign up for the spelling bee through a link that will be available on this page between Monday, December 11th through Friday, January 5th. Sign up for one of the hour-long computer-based testing times during the morning of the bee.

The top 60 students after the computerized exam will advance to the spelling bee at 2 p.m. that afternoon in the auditorium. The top ten finishers will earn medals, and the top three will receive trophies. The winner will receive a trip to the national bee.
