CEDAR FALLS — The Knights of Columbus, Council 4516 of Cedar Falls will welcome all area students to participate in the 38th annual spelling bee Jan. 27 at St. Patrick School.
Any student in grades four through seven may participate, whether public, private, parochial or home schooled, as long as they attend or reside in one of the area school districts.
Spelling bee kits with instructions, entry form, rules and spelling words are being provided to the area schools. Each school will have a spelling bee competition at their facility to determine the five contestants to advance to this district competition.
For students who study at home, the reference desk at the Cedar Falls Public Library will have the spelling bee kit available. Entry forms are to be submitted by Wednesday to the designated person in the information kit.
Registration will begin at 8 a.m. in the multi-purpose room of the school. The top two finalists from each grade will advance on to regional competition.
