Nashville Scene editor Liz Garrigan says her newspaper will apply to pick up sponsorship of the Middle Tennessee competition that feeds winners into the Scripps National Spelling Bee. The Tennessean has dropped its sponsorship, leaving the bee in peril this year. “I won my fifth grade spelling bee. I’m a spelling nerd from way back. I’d love The Scene to sponsor it," Garrigan told WKRN-Channel 2 (via Volunteer Voters).
