Midwest Spelling Bee

About the Midwest Spelling Bee:

Each year, nearly 80 students from Nebraska and western-Iowa compete in the Omaha World-Herald’s Midwest Spelling Bee. The students earn the right to compete in the Midwest Spelling Bee by winning their county or district bees. The winner of the Midwest Spelling Bee receives an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. to compete against champion spellers from across the country in the Scripps National Spelling Bee the end of May. The Omaha World-Herald is proud to sponsor The Midwest Spelling Bee since 1929.

Please check back at a later date for information about the Midwest Spelling Bee for 2016.
