The Spelling Bee has been postponed to April 26. Can you spell c-o-m-p-e-t-i-t-i-o-n? The annual The Denver Post Colorado State Spelling Bee takes place on Saturday, March 14, with the oral part of the competition beginning at 1 p.m. It’s FREE and open to the public. The winner will receive an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, DC, in May to represent Colorado at the 2020 Scripps National Spelling Bee. It’s an afternoon of suspense, fun and a little education that will have the whole family buzzin’. Sturm Hall on University of Denver Campus, 2000 E. Asbury Ave., Denver.
