10:15-11:45 AM: Vocabulary Practice Test: Please allow 15 to 20 minutes for your local school winner to complete this test. The vocabulary test is currently required at the national level bee, but will not affect the outcome of our L.A. County Regional Spelling Bee competition. Top vocabulary performances will be recognized.

Periodic breaks will coincide with the end of a spelling bee round as needed.
We determine the top three (3) champions and continue until we have a single FIRST PLACE CHAMPION who will advance to the Scripps National Spelling Bee Finals held later this spring in Washington D.C.
Concessions and souvenirs will be available throughout the event.
Good luck to all!
