Spelling Bee Extends Field


The national spelling bee which is a yearly event and televised on ESPN. This year the Spelling Bee has decided to add a wildcard to the creating more opportunity for people to compete in the spelling bee. This idea came when two kids who had finished in the top two in the national spelling bee in their first two years competed in regionals knocking one of them out. So to prevent this, they added the wild card which anyone winning even a school district level spelling bee can apply for. I believe that this will be very interesting for the Spelling Bee to try.
