Santa Barbara County Spelling Bee

Scores of students from throughout Santa Barbara County will “mind their ‘p’s’ and ‘q’s’” when they compete in the annual county spelling bee Thursday, Feb. 23 in the auditorium of the Santa Barbara County Education Office, 4400 Cathedral Oaks Road.


The elementary contest for students in grades 4 to 6 will begin at 9 a.m. The junior high contest for students in grades 7 to 9 will begin at 1:30 p.m.

This is a written test, and the first- and second-place winners are then eligible to compete in the state competitions. The San Joaquin County Office of Education will host the state elementary bee on April 21 in Stockton, and the Marin County Office of Education will host the junior high bee on May 12 in San Rafael.

The competition is open to public and private schools throughout Santa Barbara County. Further information is available from Rose Koller at 964-4710, ext. 5222.
