Top IPS Spellers Prepare for Annual



(Jan. 23, 2020) — W-I-N-N-E-R … That’s what Indianapolis Public Schools is looking for through the annual IPS District Spelling Bee. The showdown will happen Friday, Jan. 24, 2020, at 10 a.m. at Arsenal Technical High School’s Anderson Auditorium.

More than 35 building-level school winners in fourth through eighth grades will compete. The winner of the district bee will receive a new Surface Go tablet, thanks to our sponsor at the IPS Education Foundation.

“My goal is for students to participate in an academic competition, held in a professional atmosphere, which allows each student the opportunity to proudly represent their school,” says Joe Troyer, IPS Media Specialist Coach.

Top spellers at the district level will have a chance to compete at the Marion County Regional Spelling Bee hosted by IUPUI Saturday, March 14. Bee Week 2020, the final leg of the spelling bee competition, will take place May 24 through May 29, at Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland. Visit beginning in May for detailed information about Bee Week.
