This is a practice list for the "City Orals" District Championship Spelling Bee to be held on Thursday, February 27, 2020 at Hamilton Middle School.  Spellers qualifying for the Colorado State Spelling Bee or finishing in the top 32 on the 2020 City Written Spelling Test are eligible to compete in this spelling bee.  The first 160 words in the spelling bee will come from this list.  All words on this practice list come from the 2020 on-line Words of the Champions.  A 71-word championship list will subsequently be used.  The words in the championship round list could be any of the words in Merriam-Webster Unabridged (on line).  A dictionary of the Words of the Champions words including pronunciations and definitions will be furnished to all eligible spellers.
In the interest of time, there is no practice round at City Orals.  The first round words are noted on the practice list furnished to all City Orals spellers.  Those first round words are printed in blue.  Click at right on "Part 2" for the list.
