Cheer for your hometown contestant, and test your own spelling skills during the hour-long presentation filled with highlights of this year’s Arizona Spelling Bee. The show airs at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 17, and 11 a.m. Sunday, April 29 on Eight, Arizona PBS.
Each year, the state’s best spellers in grades kindergarten through eighth-grade come together for the Arizona Spelling Bee to determine who will represent Arizona in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C.
The top five winners this year included three students from Chandler.
