Social media channels are some of our favorite ways to engage with teachers, spellers and fans of the Bee! We know that you also connect with your communities online, and we want to help you promote your local bee program using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Google+ and LinkedIn.

We have put together a few enrollment-themed graphics to encourage schools in your area to enroll with the Bee! These images can also be included on your website or in your newsletters and other electronic communications.

Enrollment Opens for Schools Across the Nation

It's that time again: Teachers are preparing for the first week of class, families are taking one last vacation before the school year starts up, and here at the Bee the enrollment season has begun for schools across the United States.

The 2014-15 Bee season ended with a truly inspiring moment as Vanya Shivashankar and Gokul Venkatachalam became only the fifth pair of co-champions in the Scripps National Spelling Bee's history! It was also the very first time in the Bee's 88-year run that co-champions had been declared in back-to-back years.
