Both bees will be held in the MPR and start at 3:15 PM.  Endtimes will depend on the competition.

 

The winner of the Spelling Bee will represent Portola HGM at the LA Regional Spelling Bee on Feb 2nd. Last year, a Portola HGM student won the Regional and represented Los Angeles at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington DC.  Click below for lists of suggested words that might be in the Spelling Bee.

 

The winner of the Geography Bee will take a written test that may qualify them for the statewide Geography Bee in Sacramento, which is also a qualifier for the National Geographic Bee.  Sample Geo Bee questions.
