The Scripps National Spelling Bee is about much more than spelling, word origins and correct pronunciation. It's about inspiring confidence and a love of language that lasts a lifetime.
Our spellers are capable of more than they ever dreamed. Participating in a spelling bee teaches them valuable lessons about sportsmanship, public speaking and the value of friendship. Share the resources they need to succeed in the Bee and in life.
Behind every speller is a teacher who first believed in their potential. Take the first step on your students' journey to Washington, D.C.
