- Be respectful of the concentration of the participants by being quiet. Macy’s will ask guests who are loud to leave as to not interfere.
- If you do take photos of your child participating, please be mindful that other parents might not want their children’s pictures posted on the internet through social networking services like Facebook and Instagram.
- Please don’t Tweet out the words that kids are being asked to spell. It may be exciting that your child spelled the word correctly, but this could give an unfair advantage to others participating in the spelling bee at locations across the country.
