Thank you to our regional partners who make the Scripps National Spelling Bee possible in communities across the country! Our regional partners embody the spirit of the Bee, committing to education in their local communities.

 

The legacy of regional partnership is rooted in newspapers, but over time has evolved into a diverse collection of media outlets, universities, community organizations, sports teams and convention and visitors’ bureaus. Would your organization be a good fit?
