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 "tier" words, he/she is ready to learn the study words for the next tier.

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.
