ChillSpell 2012 has been postponed.
Chilliwack school district's spelling bee, which was initially scheduled for Jan. 24 has been moved to Jan. 31 due to last week's school closures delaying elimination rounds for some schools.
The school district postponed the event one week to ensure all participants would be ready.
The sixth annual event runs from 3:30 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. at G.W. Graham middle secondary school.
Fifty students will be competing.
Judges include city councillor Sue Attrill, school trustee Walt Krahn, and Ed Kaye of Waterstone Law.
