County to host spelling bee

CAMILLIA LANHAM

Santa Barbara County hosts its annual spelling bee on Feb. 27. Students will be competing, not vocally, but on paper.

The written test will send first- and second-place winners to face-off in the state competition. The San Joaquin County Office of Education will host the state elementary bee on April 20 in Stockton, and the Marin County Office of Education will host the junior high bee on May 11 in San Rafael.

Santa Barbara County’s competition is open to public and private schools throughout the county. It will be hosted in the education office auditorium, 400 Cathedral Oaks Road, in Santa Barbara.

The elementary contest, for grades four to six, begins at 9 a.m. and the junior high contest, for grades seven to nine, starts at 1:30 p.m.
