Watch The Virginian-Pilot Spelling Bee on WHRO & Meet the Spellers on Facebook!

For the eighth year in a row, WHRO will host The Virginian-Pilot Spelling Bee live in our studio!

Throughout southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina, public schools, independent schools and home school associations will all hold local school bees and send their winners to WHRO, where the area’s finest middle school spellers compete for the regional title. From here, the first place winner will travel to Washington D.C. to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Watch It Live!
The 2015 Virginian-Pilot Spelling Bee will air live on WHRO-TV on Saturday, February 21st, at 2:00 p.m.
