The Jersey Journal Hudson County Spelling Bee is set for this Saturday, February 29th at Secaucus High School. The county bee is sponsored by the Hudson County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs, and County Executive DeGise is once again underwriting the champion’s national participation. The bee is organized and directed by The Jersey Journal, and Hudson Regional Hospital is returning as presenter of the bee. AAA North Jersey, a past presenter, continues to support the bee as well.
Open to students through grade 8 who attend Hudson County schools that have registered to participate, the bee is the local conduit to the national competition. The winner on Saturday will move on to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in National Harbor, Maryland, this spring.
