Knights of Columbus Spelling Bee

February 1 @ 9:00am

The Sheldon St. Patrick’s Knights of Columbus are hosting their Annual Spelling bee to be held at the Wansink Center on the campus of Village Northwest Unlimited on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at 9:30 am.

Registration forms can be obtained at Sheldon Public, Catholic, or Christian Schools prior to the day of the event.  Pre-registration will also take place on that morning at 9:00 am. At that time participants will be checked in, assigned a contestant number, and directed to a competition room.

There will be four different age categories—grades 4-7. Participants will be competing against students from Sheldon area schools. Sheldon area schools will have copies of the spelling lists for each grade, which they will distribute to those students interested in participating.

The competition for each grade level will last approximately 30 minutes or less. As each speller is eliminated, we do ask that contestants and audience members remain in the competition room until the winner has been decided.

Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each age category, and all participants will receive a certificate for participation. Medals and certificates will be handed out as each age level finishes its competition. Participants will also have an opportunity to win other prizes. Those finishing  first or second will have an opportunity to participate in the regional level of competition.
