It's Bee Time in Oakland! Join us for OUSD's annual Spelling Bee on Thursday February 7, in the Tilden Campus Auditorium, 4551 Steele St. We will honor talented student spellers in grades four through eight, and identify the eight students who will represent Oakland Unified and compete in the Alameda County Spelling Bee on March 16! Each student participant at our event is considered a District finalist, and will receive a medal at the beginning of the Bee. Three trophies will also be awarded.
Elementary competition runs from 5:00 PM - 6:15 PM and middle school spellers take the stage from 6:45 PM - 8:00 PM. Students engage in oral competition for both levels with multiple rounds of increasing difficulty, resulting in a winner and several runners-up who will go onto county competition!
