2. It will be a written round.

8. Teams selected for the first round will be allowed to participate in the next rounds of the event.

BUZZ WORDS (The Spell Bee Competition):

Round 1 (Team):
1. The pronouncer announces the word to be spelled. He/She speaks distinctively, without distorting the normal pronunciation of the word. He/She uses the word in a sentence and says the word again.
2. The speller team listens carefully to the pronouncer. When the team is sure, they understand the word, they write it down in the sheet of paper provided.
3. The judge determines whether or not the word was spelled correctly.
4. The teams that win this round will be allowed to the next individual round.

Round 2 (Individual):
1. This round will have time constraint (2 minutes for each participant).
2. The pronouncer announces the word to be spelled. Once the speller is sure, he/she spells the word clear and audible. This goes on for the time limit mentioned above. The quicker the participant is in spelling the words, the more is his/her chances of winning.
3. All the words that are spelled in the time constraint will be monitored by the judge.
4. The winners from this round will move to the final round of the event.

TO BEE OR NOT TO BEE (The Six Word Story Competition):

What story can you tell us in six words? A Six-Word Story should provide a movement of conflict, action, and resolution that gives the sense of a complete story transpiring in a moment’s reading.

1. As the round suggests, only six words should be used to frame the story.
2. Time allotted: 20 minutes.
3. An on-spot theme will be given to the participants on the basis of which the tale is to be written.
4. The decision of the judge will be final and will not be subjected to any change.
5. Submissions should be on-spot, original and unpublished six-word stories.
