Dr. June McOmber

Junior High Spelling Bee

The Dr. June McOmber Junior High Spelling Bee brings the best spellers in the county together for a competition designed to promote and acknowledge exemplary student achievement. These students previously won school or district spelling competitions in one of two grade categories -elementary division for 4-6th grades and a junior division for 7-9th grades.

The final competition is held in February at Curtis Creek School. After the county championship, the winner and runner-up in both divisions will represent Tuolumne County at the State Spelling Championships.
