The San Diego County Scripps Regional Spelling Bee is open to students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades in a public or private school with a combined enrollment of 30 or more children. The overall winner of the countywide Spelling Bee will be awarded the title of Spelling Bee Champion and go on to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Schools can enroll in the bee each year around late August and must submit school winner information by mid-February. The San Diego County Scripps Regional Spelling Bee is generally held in mid-March.

Why Spelling Bees Matter

A campus spelling bee is a great opportunity for students to connect with their school and shine in a competition that's based on academics. If a speller makes it to the regional bee, then it's a chance for students throughout the county to make connections around a shared interest.

  • They provide students who may not have interest in sports or arts a chance to be part of a scholastic competition.
  • There are no special materials or resources needed. Anyone can participate.
  • They celebrate academic success and literacy.
