The Montana Television Network will proudly sponsor the 2020 Treasure State Spelling Bee, moving the annual event this year from Billings to Montana State University in Bozeman.

The event will be held Saturday, March 14, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in Ballroom A of the Strand Union Building (751 W. Grant Street) on campus at MSU.

The winner of Montana's state spelling bee will go on to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in May.

The Scripps National Spelling Bee is administered on a not-for-profit basis by The E.W. Scripps Company from its headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio. The E.W. Scripps Company took ownership of the Montana Television Network in May 2019.

Local winners will compete against the rest of the state.

Here are the top three:

  • 1st place – Nora McKelvey, she is an 8th grader from Holy Spirit Catholic School
  • 2nd place – Connor Sturges, he is an 7th grader from Holy Spirit Catholic School
  • 3rd place – Conner Reisinger, he is a 7th grader from North Middle School
