More than half of the 283 spellers in the 2015 Scripps National Spelling Bee said their best subject is either math or science, two S.T.E.M academic disciplines. This adds up to well-rounded students.
Bee Week 2017 will take place May 28–June 2, 2017 within the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.
Admission to the onstage rounds of the 2017 Scripps National Spelling Bee is free and open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.
