Santa Barbara County Education Office to Hold Annual Spelling Bee

Next Thursday, Feb. 28, the Santa Barbara County Education Office will host the annual county spelling bee.

The competition will take place in the office’s auditorium at 4400 Cathedral Oaks Road. Volunteers from Masonic Lodge No. 192, the Town and Country Women’s Club, and the Women’s Service Club of Goleta will once again serve as judges.

The elementary contest for students in fourth through sixth grades will begin at 9 a.m. The junior high contest for students in seventh through ninth grades will begin at 1:30 p.m.

Some 200 students from public and private schools throughout the county will vie for trophies and honors in the annual event. The top winners in each category will proceed to the state contest.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
