The goal of the spelling bee is to encourage children to perfect the art of spelling, and help enlarge their vocabularies and widen their knowledge of the English language.

More than 200 grade-school students from more than 40 school districts, private schools and home schools in Central New York entered this year’s competition. The top 36 from the written test will advance to the Feb. 6 oral competition contest, and the winner will participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
