|Details:||Thanks to Dan Pinkerton, coordinator of the North Idaho Homeschoolers Spelling Bee, Limited and Full INCH members can once again participate in the Bee for homeschoolers! This is a great opportunity to encourage better spelling, as well as enjoy "home court advantage", as they compete for cash prizes! All the dates, qualification rules, word lists, and activities, are available in PDF format at http://inch.wisdomsbeginning.com/pdf/SpellingBee/, but here is the run-down:|
Registration is open to grades 4th - 8th, and you can sign up at INCH or by e-mailing Greg Braileanu. Deadline to register through INCH is December 1st, but the earlier the children start practicing, the better! There will be a practice Bee January 14th, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., at Grace Bible. The Homeschool Bee is January 28th, 10 a.m. - 12 p.m., also at Grace Bible.
The top three finishers in each grade level will receive a cash prize, and the five winners will participate in the Regional at NIC, on March 18th. The one winner from there will go to Washington DC with a parent, all expenses paid, and a chance to win up to $40,000 in prizes!
