INYO COUNTY SPELLING BEE, APRIL 6TH
The annual Inyo County Spelling Bee competition will be held on Thursday, April 6th, at
the Jill Kinmont Boothe School in Bishop. Students in grades 4-9 from all school
districts in Inyo County are eligible to participate.
In conjunction with Altrusa, the Inyo County Office of Education sponsors this
competition. The goal of the Spelling Bee is to promote literacy, create confidence and
an earned sense of achievement. Students participating study words from various
resources, including the dictionary and a 150-page word list with 3 levels of difficulty.
The Inyo County Spelling Bee competition will begin at 5:00 in the evening with the
Elementary division for students in grades 4-6. Following the Elementary division
competition, there will be a short intermission and the Inyo County Spelling Bee
competition will continue with the Junior High division for grades 7-9.
Trophies and monetary scholarships will be awarded to the first, second, and third-place
winners of each division, courtesy of Altrusa. The top two 4-6th grade elementary and
top two 7-9th grade junior high spellers qualify to participate in the Elementary and
Junior High State Spelling Championship competitions in May.
The public is encouraged to attend the county Spelling Bee Competition beginning at
5:00 pm at Jill Kinmont Boothe School in the Great Room. For more information,
