Spelling Bee







    Scripps is the nation's largest and longest-running educational promotion, administered on a not-for-profit basis by The E.W. Scripps Company and local spelling bee sponsors in the United States, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Department of Defense Schools in Europe; also, the Bahamas, Canada, Ghana, Jamaica, Japan and South Korea.

    Our purpose is to help students improve their spelling, increase their vocabularies, learn concepts, and develop correct English usage that will help them all their lives.

    Every year, tens of thousands of schools enroll in the Spelling Bee, including WCI.  We will conduct spelling bee programs at the classroom, grade, and school level, and send our spelling champion(s) to the next level of competition!

    Students prepare for local spelling bees using a variety of materials provided by us and Merriam-Webster, and they advance to the Scripps National Spelling Bee near Washington, D.C., by winning a series of spellings as outlined by their local spelling bee sponsors.
