    Note:
    Some words have a slash/ next to them.
    This means that the word has two
    spellings. Both will be accepted as correct
    in the Spelling Bee.
    You must acknowledge capital letters and
    hyphens in order for the spelling of a word
    to be correct.
    Examples:
    If the word is Eskimos, you must say…
    “Capital E, s, k, i, m, o, s” for it to be
    correct.
    If the word is jack-o-lantern, you must
    say…
    “j, a, c, k, hyphen, o, hyphen, l, a, n, t, e, r,
    n” for it to be correct.
    *The word, dash, may also be used instead
    of hyphen
