This summer has flown by very rapidly! It feels like the 2017 Scripps National Spelling Bee was just yesterday. I have totally lost track of time during this summer. We have been traveling, both around the country and internationally, and we are wrapping up our last semester of coaching.
The North South Foundation (NSF) – National Finals is next weekend at the University of Houston in Houston, Texas. I am really looking forward to the event! The spelling bee competition, both Junior Spelling Bee and Senior Spelling Bee, will be held on Saturday, August 12, 2017. Like every year, there will be some great spellers competing next weekend and it will be great to see all the competitors show off their spelling skills. A number of 2017 Scripps National Spelling Bee (SNSB) participants are registered to compete in the Senior Spelling Bee, among other talented spellers from around the country. This year, I am expecting the Junior Spelling Bee to be extremely competitive as well. The NSF Junior Spelling Bee provides a great platform to build a foundation for the next generation of spellers and I am truly excited to see them compete. This competition will give you just a taste of who has potential to shine on the big stage (SNSB) in the future.
We will have a very special guest attending the NSF spelling bees this year and she has gracefully accepted to attend the event in Houston.
If you can attend in person, I’m sure you will enjoy the competition and meeting the special guest. If you are unable to make it to the event next weekend in Houston, the NSF spelling events will stream live on Yupp TV.

Hope you all tune in, and if you are competing at the NSF Finals for any event, good luck to you!
