Scripps National Spelling Bee

Updates for the 93rd Scripps National Spelling Bee

The Scripps National Spelling Bee is suspending its national finals in National Harbor, Maryland. The suspension includes all in-person events and the live national broadcast the week of May 24. If possible, we will work with our local sponsors, spellers, convention partners and ESPN to reschedule the 93rd Scripps National Spelling Bee for later this year.
