“Even in the technology rich world that we live in today, spelling continues to be an important tool because the written word is so powerful,” said Benjamin B. Roundtree, NCSS Chief Academic Officer. “Among other things, the spelling bee supports our students’ learning by enhancing their understanding of vocabulary relative to spelling and by promoting correct word usage. Indeed, spelling bee competitions in our schools continue to be highly anticipated events, and we are happy to continue this venerable tradition.”

The winner of the Newton County School System Spelling Bee will represent the school district in the Region 5 Spelling Bee on Saturday, February 24, 2024, at Edwards Middle School in Conyers, Georgia.
