About the Bee
Since 1925, children across America have participated in school, local and regional bees with the singular hope of making it to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. This year, 11 million students will join in the experience.

Here at the Scripps National Spelling Bee we know that great readers make great spellers. To help get every student excited about reading, we've created the Bee's Bookshelf, a monthly book club for readers of all ages!
