Great American SpellCheck

All schools enrolled in the Scripps National Spelling Bee program have the opportunity to participate in the Great American SpellCheck, a fun and easy way to raise money for your school. All money raised stays with your school, and our fundraiser keeps the focus on academics. 

Here\'s how it works

• Schools that enroll with the 2018 Scripps National Spelling Bee will automatically receive these Great American SpellCheck benefits through the log-in section of

• Great American SpellCheck grade-specific word lists and study sheets for grades 1–8,

• Great American SpellCheck pledge sheets,

• Great American SpellCheck test forms,

• Great American SpellCheck instructions, and

• Great American SpellCheck communication templates.

• At a time that your school determines (this fundraiser may be conducted at any point in the school year!), students study grade-specific word lists and collect pledges from family and friends for every word they spell correctly in the Great American SpellCheck.

• Students improve their spelling skills and your school enjoys the financial benefits!


Your school could easily raise $6,000.

• Elementary school with 320 students in grades 1–6

• 75 percent of students (240) collect pledges from family and friends averaging $25 per student = $6,000
