The Brauntex Regional champion will advance to the
Scripps National Spelling Bee.
Traditionally, the Regional champion would travel to
National Harbor, Maryland for Bee Week in June,
but - due to COVID-19 - things will be different this year.
This year, the preliminaries, quarterfinals, and semifinals will be held virtually in the weeks leading up to the July 8 finals and will be broadcast live on ESPN platforms.
Dates for the preliminary virtual rounds will be announced by Scripps soon.
The press release from Scripps regarding this change can be found here.
