UMES to Host Regional Competition for 2013 Scripps National Spelling Bee
The University of Maryland Eastern Shore today announced that it will serve as a regional spelling bee host for the Scripps National Spelling Bee, ensuring that a youth from the Lower Shore will travel to Washington D.C. to compete for the national title.
“We know students face tough challenges in the classroom every day,” UMES President Juliette B. Bell said. “And we want to do our part to inspire them – and acknowledge their achievements.”
UMES will host the bee on March 2 at the Ella Fitzgerald Center for the Performing Arts on the UMES.
