This is a practice list for the "City Orals" District Championship Spelling Bee to be held on Thursday, February 28, 2019 at Hamilton Middle School.  Spellers qualifying for the Colorado State Spelling Bee or finishing in the top 32 on the 2019 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 2019 on-line Spell It!  A 71-word championship list will subsequently be used.  The first 20 words in the championship list are taken from the 2019 Scripps grade-specific word list, 8th and 9th grade.  The rest of the words in the championship round list could be any of the words in Merriam-Webster Unabridged (on line).  A dictionary of the Spell It! words including pronunciations and definitions will be furnished to all eligible spellers.

Interschool spelling bees:

Each school can have up to ten spellers compete in the spelling bee. Teachers can bring their entire group to the bee, but ten spellers take part in the bee and the rest of the students are part of the audience.
