LIFE of Tampa 2012 Spelling Bee
Saturday, January 28, 2012 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EST)
The LIFE of Tampa home-based learning support group Spelling Bee invites students in the eighth grade or below, in the Hillsborough, Hernando, Pasco and Pinellas County areas to join in our 2012 local Spelling Bee.
The event will be held January 28th, from 1pm to 4pm (or its conclusion!) at the Community Learning Center at Spirit of Life at 18412 Burrell Road in Odessa, FL. The first half hour will be a Mini-Bee for 5-7 year olds, with the winner of that Bee competing at our 1:45pm full scale Bee. The winner of the LIFE of Tampa Spelling Bee will go on to compete in the 2012 Tampa Bay Area Regional Spelling Bee in March, at Admiral Farragut Academy. Winner of the Regional Spelling Bee may go on to compete at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C..
LIFE of Tampa Spelling Bee participants will not be divided into grade or age levels, but will compete together, in the style of the regional competition in March. There is no minimum grade level for participation. The purpose of the Bee is to have fun while helping youth improve their spelling, increase their vocabularies, and improve their English usage skills in a way that will serve them a life time! The event is intended to encourage and celebrate academic excellence in the Tampa Bay area. Registration is open through January 16, 2011.
A donation of $5 per participant is requested at the time of registration, to help defray associated Bee costs.
