Arizona’s top 27 spellers, ranging in age from 10-14, are studying etymologies and word lists in preparation for the 2012 AEF Arizona Spelling Bee, which will be held Saturday, March 24, in Phoenix.

This is the 13th year the event is being sponsored by the Arizona Educational Foundation (AEF), a nonprofit organization that promotes excellence in education.

The bee, which is open to the public, will begin at 1 p.m. at the Eight/Arizona PBS studios on the sixth floor of the Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication located on the ASU Downtown Phoenix campus, 555 N. Central Ave.

The winner of the Arizona Spelling Bee will represent Arizona in the 85th annual Scripps National Spelling Bee, which begins May 27 in Washington, D.C.
