<p>I will use the auditorium of my school as the podium. Try to advertise as much as possible with my debate team (i.e. making PA announcements, telling my homeroom and other classes and have other members of the debate club do the same)
Pick one day after school ( or if the principal lets me do this: pick one day during school most likely the last period of class before school ends) and have my debate club advisor be the spelling bee judge. I will be the emcee </p>
<p>Here are the rules:
* Each competitor must spell the word, and then use it in a sentence.
The contest should begin with easier words for the first few rounds and progress to harder words in the later rounds.
As each competitor takes his or her turn, if they misspell the word, the next competitor has a chance to steal the word.
Spelling teams can be comprised of three or four participants so individual contestants are not singled out.
When a team misses two words, they are disqualified from that round.
Getting a list of spelling bee words from the dictionary or via an online dictionary ensures there is no cost to you.
Remember, distribute the list of words to the emcee and judge so they are well prepared for the competition.
Two winning teams go on to the finals.
The last team standing wins the spelling bee.</p>
<p>If the fundraising turns out to be great, as in hundreds of dollars, then we will donate that money to other clubs in the school as well (not just for debate)</p>
