The public is invited to watch dozens of students from each of Fort Mill’s middle schools compete in the district-wide spelling bee at 9:30 a.m. Friday.

Students qualify for the FMSD spelling bee by winning their middle school’s competition. Two students from each grade (6-8) qualified for the spelling bee, school officials said.

The winner of the district-wide Spelling Bee qualifies for the regional competition hosted by The Charlotte Observer. The winner of that competition qualifies for the national spelling bee in Washington, DC.

The Fort Mill School District Spelling Bee will be held in the Training and Support Center, at 2233 Deerfield Drive in Fort Mill. It usually lasts about 2.5 hours, officials said.
