BOUNTIFUL – The Davis Clipper Spelling Bee, hosted in conjunction with local volunteers, gets underway in public and private elementary and junior high schools this month.
Schools across Davis County have already registered and are planning to hold school-wide bees by the end of January. Winners from each school will progress to the preliminary bees for North Davis and South Davis regions.
The semi-final bee for North Davis County schools will be held on Feb. 7 at Layton High School. The South Davis County Bee will be held at Bountiful High School on Feb. 19.
The final Davis County Spelling Bee will take place at Woods Cross High School on March 21. Each finalist will have a chance to be photographed and recognized in special sections of the Davis Clipper and Utah Islander. All proceeds from registration fees will go toward scholarships for winning spellers.
