Columbia Missourian - Spelling Bee

Columbia Missourian Regional Spelling Bee: It's time!

Good morning!

The Columbia Missourian Regional Spelling Bee is just one day away. We are so excited about the event!

The Bee will take place tomorrow — Tuesday, March 10 — at Jesse Auditorium (801 Conley Ave Bldg 2). Registration for the event will begin promptly at 3:45 p.m.

Upon arrival, all contestants must meet at Jesse Auditorium located on the Southwest side of the Jesse building. There will be signs outside the building for further assistance.

Once in the building, a speller and one parent should go upstairs for registration. Other parents and guests should enter Jesse Auditorium from the first level. Feel free to bring as many guests as you would like to the event.

Food and Drink

Please do not bring any food or drink inside the auditorium. There will be refreshments and snacks available for spellers outside the auditorium!


You will be able to park at Turner and Conley Parking Structures. Prior to the event, please register your car here.
