2016 Competition Information

Tuesday, May 10
6:00 p.m. - until
Bladen County Schools Board of Education building

The Bladen County Schools Spelling Bee is a competition held each year in the spring for school-level spelling champions in grades 6 to 8. Each middle school in the county is invited to send two school winners to compete in the county competition. Family members, friends and teachers are on hand for the nerve-wracking competition that tests the skills, smarts and stamina of the participating “word nerds.” 

The top three winners of the county Bee are sponsored by Sampson-Bladen Oil Company of Elizabethtown.

All students involved receive participation certificates, with the top three spellers also receiving cash prizes and trophies.
