Grinnell College Virtual Alumni Spelling Bee

Are you a skilled speller? Or maybe you yourself aren't a great speller, but you enjoy watching the Scripps National Spelling Bee? Then join us for fun, wonderfully nerdy evenings of spelling, words, and competition at Grinnell's first Virtual Alumni Spelling Bee!

The Spelling Bee will be organized into two rounds. The first, preliminary round will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 8. Participants will be split into multiple, live breakout rooms, and a facilitator will quiz participants using the same set of words to spell in each room.

The 15 top finalists from Tuesday's event will return for a championship round on Thursday, Dec. 10 to discover this year's Spelling Bee champion!
