The Indiana Academic Spell Bowl is a team concept with no individual winners. Each round consists of one team member writing the correct spelling of seven words while competing against one team member from each other school. Each word is graded immediately and an individual scoring chart maintains a running team score as the evening progresses.

The team members of the schools with highest scores in each of the four enrollment classifications at each site will be recognized with awards after the competition. In addition, the top 10 teams in each enrollment classification statewide will receive a plaque or certificate.

The competition is administered by the Indiana Association of School Principals and Department of Student Programs and sponsored by Purdue University.

Results will be posted at noon Friday at www.iasp.org. Click on Academic Competitions listed under the department headings, then Competition Results at the top of the page, then the appropriate link.
