This official site for the Scripps National Spelling Bee answers all of your questions about how you and your school can promote good spelling and vocabulary knowledge. Check out all of the links to learn how to study for the Bee, guidelines, and application deadlines. December is the annual deadline for your school's enrollment in the National Bee. This site will have the exact deadline each year. Click on Study Zone to download the Consolidated Word List (a gigantic compilation of 794 pages of words that have been used from 1950 to the present). Students can test their spelling know-how by clicking on the Test Your Spell It Knowledge link on the homepage. Your serious competitive spellers will also benefit by exploring Merriam-Webster's Spell It (reviewed here by TeachersFirst). This site requires Adobe Acrobat and Flash. You can get both from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

In the Classroom

If you have students who are competitive spellers, encourage participation by introducing this site to them and their families. Once your school signs up with Scripps (sign up at this website), host an information event one evening to promote the Bee. Moving through the competition will involve family support, so make sure they are well aware of the steps along the way. Official rules must be adhered to, so make sure you and your school become very familiar with the guidelines.
  This resource requires Adobe Flash and PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.
