Scripps Howard assumed sponsorship of the program in 1941, but did not hold spelling bees during the World War II years of 1943, 1944 and 1945.

Here the thing: most of us trainees have either English or German as a mothertongue and pretty much all of us can, as journalists, work in German or English (or both), even those who aren native speakers. So you don have to be a native speaker in English or German to get into the program, but you should be able to work in one or both of these languages. Which doesn mean that you can have a slight accent or every now and then need advice from a native speaker on whether that sentence you just wrote in English/German works..
