Schools are responsible for selection of the TOP TWO STUDENTS in each GRADE.
Winners announced immediately following each contest.
1. Each student will spell one easy word for warm up.
2. Each student will stand, walk to the designated area, repeat the word to the announcer, then spell the word. When the student is finished, repeat the word so that the announcer knows he/she is finished.
3. A student may have the word repeated once.
4. A student may ask for a sentence using the word before they begin.
5. Please discuss Homophones! For Example: Blue and Blew
Remind the student to ask for a sentence.
6. Any student may repeat the spelling of the word twice as long as the sequence of the letters is not altered and they begin at the first of the word. If the sequence of the letters is altered, it is considered a misspelling and the student is out of the competition.
7. There will be a designated area for the students to sit once out of competition.
8. When the contestants are reduced to two, and one misspells a word, the other contestant shall spell the same word. If the second contestant spells that word plus the next word on the announcer's list, the second contestant is the winner.
9. There will be door monitors. Visitors/Listeners will be allowed to enter and exit between each contest.
10. Because of time constraints, the announcer and the judges have the right to move to the next list of words whenever they deem necessary. Please have your students study their grade level list and the next grade level's list.
