WELCOME TO BEE WEEK 2017:  And here's what's different about this year's Bee:

  • Today's prelim test is handwritten, not computerized multiple-choice. 
  • There is a tiebreaker test in case the finalists exhaust the Championship Words list, which sounds so stupid that I will not repeat its components.  I will instead say, as I have always said: either let them keep spelling all night long, or live with a tie -- whatever spellers of this level would prefer.
  • It also looks like, for the first time I can remember, the kids are in random order, not sorted by state.
Today's the written spelling/vocab test.  Live spelling starts tomorrow AM.

P.S. to Shonda: one Jamaican, seven Canadians.
