ACSI Spelling Bee

Overview

Enlightium Academy is partnering with the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) to provide students with the opportunity to compete in a spelling bee with other Enlightium students, as well as students from other schools. The ACSI Spelling Bee is not an exercise in memorization but in spelling abilities.

There will be two rounds for the 2017-18 school year:

  • January 19th, 2018 - Round 1 will be a remote session so that students can compete against each other from the comfort of their homes. The top 3 performers from each grade level can compete in round 2.
  • January 29th, 2018 - Round 2 will held in Castle Hills, TX against other schools as part of the ACSI competition.

As this is the first time Enlightium will be involved in a spelling bee competition, EA has decided to hold the tournament on a small scale. For the 2017-18 school year the spelling bee will only be available to students in grades 3-8 living in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana or Arkansas.
