Spell Bowl is a state-sponsored academic competition open to any middle school student who enjoys learning new words and perfecting his or her spelling skill. Unlike in a spelling bee where students speak to an audience, a spell bowl competition features teams of students spelling with pencil and paper.
We begin preparations for the meet with a call-out during homeroom for all students who are interested in learning more about the team. Students are then tested at practice over selected words; after several practices, the highest scorers on these tests are selected to form East Tipp's competing team.
The 2017 Regional Competition is scheduled for early November, and the State Competition is set for November 11 ... but you can start practicing today with this year's word list. For more information, contact Mrs. Clinkenbeard.
