Delaware’s annual fourth- to eighth-grade spelling bee is set for Saturday, March 5.

Elementary schools from across the state must register at the Scripps National Bee website at www.spellingbee.com by Friday, Oct. 15, for the special $99 rate if they wish to send champion spellers to Delaware’s 2011 State Spelling Bee.

Registering for the Scripps National Bee automatically registers schools for the Delaware bee at St. Mark’s High School. It is open to all schools across the state, including public, private and home schools.

The Scripps organization again will sponsor the trip for Delaware’s top speller to the national Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C., in May.
