BEDFORD, N.Y. -- Bedford Village Elementary School (BVES) is hosting its eighth-annual spelling bee Wednesday evening.
The bee, which is scheduled to be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., is sponsored by the Bedford Village Elementary School Association (BVESA), which is the school's parent group.
This year's bee has several changes, BVESA notes on its website.
"This year we have changed our practice lists to use grade level Journeys words in the case of grades 3-5 and Foundations vocabulary words for 2nd graders. The first 4 rounds will only be words from this list. The following rounds will be words that follow similar spelling rules and increase in difficulty as the levels rise but do not appear on the lists."
Sign in for the bee is asked for at 4:30 p.m.
