National Spelling Bee to return this year

The National Spelling Bee is making a comeback.
The Scripps National Spelling Bee was canceled in 2020 because of the pandemic, but is set to return this year.
The preliminary, quarterfinal and semifinal rounds will be held virtually.
Then the Finals will take place on July 8 at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
Up to 12 finalists will participate in the in-person finals in an effort to avoid spreading COVID-19.
