Sheldon Knights of Columbus Spelling Bee

January 26 @ 9:30am

The Sheldon St. Patrick’s Knights of Columbus are hosting their Annual Spelling bee at St. Patrick’s School on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at 10:00 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 9:30 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 can last from 30 minutes to an hour. As each speller is eliminated, we do ask that contestant and audience member remain in the competition room until the winner has been decided. Medals and certificates will be handed out as each age level finishes its competition. Those participating will also have an opportunity to win other prizes.

The top two finishers will also move on to the regional competition which will be held on Sunday, February 24, 2019 at 1:00 pm. The regional competition will be held at St. Patrick’s Catholic School in Sheldon.
