What is a spelling bee?

Can you spell F-U-N! A spelling bee is a competition in which contestants are asked to spell a broad selection of words, usually with a varying degree of difficulty. Spelling bees help to promote literacy by providing children with a positive goal to work toward and give them a forum to display the fruits of their hard work.
