FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Albuquerque To Host National Spanish Spelling Bee 4th Annual Competition

ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico (July 19, 2014) – Albuquerque is set to host the 4th Annual Santillana USA National Spanish Spelling Bee Competition.  This unique event will take place at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, 1701 4th St. SW, Albuquerque, NM, 87102, from 9:00 AM to 12 noon on Saturday, July 19. The largest group of Spanish language spellers ever to compete in this national event will participate in an intense but fun day of competition where only one student will earn the recognition of National Spanish Spelling Bee Champion.

Students and their families from across the U.S, arrive in Albuquerque on Thursday, July 17th to begin their preparation for this important competition.

Students have already battled through several rounds of local Spanish Spelling Bee competitions in order to represent their home states during this singular event.  To be considered correct, students must include in their spelling the special diacritical marks of the Spanish language, such as accents, the tilde and the dieresis. Participants in this national competition truly represent the best of the best in Grades 4-8 from six states across the US.

Master of Ceremonies for the Spanish Spelling Bee is GUEROLOCO (Steven Stiegelmeyer), WINNER OF THE 2011, 2012 and 2013 CHICAGO MUSIC AWARD FOR BEST REGGAETON ENTERTAINER and double award winner in 2013 for Best Latin Entertainer and Best Reggaeton.  GueroLoco, a Marine veteran, is a proponent of language learning and encourages young people to learn one or more other languages.

New Mexico has had the honor of being the home state of the first three winners of this exceptionally entertaining and challenging competition.
