Spelling Bee Rules

We encourage all spellers and parents to read these rules. These rules are guidelines designed to assist spelling bee officials and spellers at the local level.


Spelling Bee Tips 

1.  Students should first learn the study words for his/her grade level - found here.

2.  Once the student has mastered his/her own grade-specific words, he/she is ready to learn the study words for all other grade levels. There are a total of ~450 words on the 2019 school spelling bee study lists.

3.  Join the Word Club on spellingbee.com for direct access to spelling materials from the Scripps National Spelling Bee, including online quizzes and audio pronunciations.

4.  Read How to Study for a Spelling Bee by Scripps National Spelling Bee pronouncer, Dr. Jacques Bailly.
