Lincoln County spelling bee set for Feb. 22

| February 16, 2024 7:00 AM

The Lincoln County Spelling Bee will be held on Feb. 22, 2024, at the Lincoln County High School auditorium in Eureka, beginning at 1 p.m. 

Students in grades four through eight are eligible to participate in this annual event.

Schools must be registered with the Scripps National Spelling Bee organization to participate in the Treasure State Spelling Bee. In addition, Scripps has implemented a registration fee for all Montana schools wishing to compete at the state and national level.

Practice words are available to any student, whether they are from a registered school or not, at www.myspellit.com.

You will also find a My Spell It test link on the Scripps website so that spellers can practice randomly selected words.

Public, private and home schools are holding local contests to choose representatives for the county spelling bee. 

If the winner of the Lincoln County event is from a school that is registered with the Scripps National Spelling Bee, they will qualify to represent Lincoln County at the 2024 Treasure State Bee on Saturday, March 9, 2024, at 1 p.m. at the Strand Union Building at Montana State University in Bozeman.
