Study Resources

We want our national finalists to be as prepared as possible for the national competition in National Harbor, Maryland. Merriam-Webster Unabridged is the official dictionary of the Scripps National Spelling Bee, and every word from the competition will come from this source. All national finalists receive free access to a one-year subscription to Merriam-Webster Unabridged Online.

Regional spelling bee winners receive a certificate from their local area sponsors with a subscription code from Merriam-Webster after winning their Final Local Bee. RSVBee participants receive a subscription code via email directly from the Scripps National Spelling Bee office.

These study resources became available to spellers on Wednesday, April 10:
