Annually, a National Spelling Bee is held in Washington D.C. to determine a National Champion. Wisconsin's representative to the national competition is selected at the Badger State Bee.
CESA 9, in conjunction with the Wisconsin State Journal, sponsors the regional spelling bees that lead up to the state bee. CESA 9 holds four regional competitions with the top speller from each regional advancing to the Badger State Spelling Bee.
Districts must be registered with Scripps in order to be eligible to participate in any spelling bee leading up to the National Bee. Scripps enrollment period is August 16, 2012 - October 15, 2012. For more information on registration, please to to the Scripps site.
