Come and show off your wordy knowledge or cheer on the brave contestants while enjoying a tasty beverage at Chaotic Good Brewery in Kasson!

Top spellers will get fabulous prizes from Chaotic Good.

This is a single elimination spelling bee. Eliminated participants are encouraged to hang around and support the other spellers still competing for bragging rights.

  1. Pre-registration is encouraged – register here! In person registration opens at 6:00 and closes at 6:20. Late comers can enjoy a drink from the bar and the show, but they won’t be able to register to spell!
  2. There is no charge to register and all ages are welcome.
  3. When spellers register, they will be asked to roll a 100 sided die. Speller order will go from lowest to highest.
  4. The spelling bee is conducted in rounds. Each speller remaining in the spelling bee at the start of a round spells one word in each round.
  5. Spellers will be provided a word, along with its definition and a sentence featuring the word. You can also ask about word origin or parts of speech.
  6. Spellers will have 60 seconds to spell their word. Notepads & writing implements will be provided. To confirm that you have completed the spelling of your word please use the usual spelling bee convention of “word, w-o-r-d, word.” You will not be penalized for not doing so, but it’s good form.
  7. The way a speller spells their word out loud for the first time is their final answer. You can’t change letters you’ve already said out loud. Please speak loudly and clearly so the judge can hear you correctly.
  8. Spellers will be eliminated for misspelling a word or if they do not provide a complete spelling before their time expires.
  9. If a word is misspelled it will be retired and a new word will be given to the next speller.
  10. The judges’ rulings are final.
