The Denver Post Colorado State Spelling Bee is on Saturday, March 10

Good luck to all students from across Colorado competing for a chance to be the Colorado State Spelling Bee champion! The 2018 Bee is March 10 at Sturm Hall on the University of Denver Campus, 2000 E. Asbury Ave., Denver CO 80210.

More than 280 students will begin the day testing their abilities with a written spelling and vocabulary test to hopefully advance as a finalist for the afternoon (approximately 35 spellers.) The oral portion with the finalists will begin at 1 p.m. and is open to the public and free to attend. The champion will go on to represent Colorado in the Scripps National Spelling Bee near Washington D.C. to compete for a $40,000 cash prize. For media inquiries, please call 303-915-1609.
