MOESC Gears Up for Spelling Bee Season
Students from around the area are studying hard because as soon as winter break ends, it is spelling bee season! Mid-Ohio Educational Service Center will again be hosting the Tri-County Bee on February 13th at 6:30 p.m. at the Mid-Ohio Conference Center at 890 W. Fourth Street in Mansfield.
The bee will host the top 12 students from each of the Crawford, Morrow, and Richland County bees. Crawford County's bee will take place on January 9th at 7 p.m. at Crestline Exempted Village Schools at 435 Oldfield Road in Crestline. The Richland County bee will take place next on January 16th at the Mid-Ohio Conference Center at 9:30 a.m. Morrow County will round out the season with their bee on January 23rd at 7 p.m. at Northmor Local Schools at 5247 County Road 29 south of Galion. The public is welcome to attend all of the bees.
Michelle Vance, gifted consultant and educational consultant at MOESC, said the bees are a really great experience for students and bring the community together. "Spelling bees are an excellent way for students to improve their abilities and their confidence as they join other students from area schools. What I really love is how the County and Tri-County Spelling Bees provide an opportunity for parents, communities, and area school districts to come together and enjoy an academic event." She also noted that while these spelling bee events are run separately from the National Scripps Spelling Bee, many of the schools also participate in the Scripps Spelling Bee as well.
The county bees are open to any school district or private school in that county. Those interested in participating or want more information should call Leah Barger or Michelle Vance at MOESC at 419-774-5520.
