The new spelling season for the 2021-2022 school year has officially begun.
School enrollment begins Aug. 20, 2021 and ends Dec 31, 2021. Once schools enroll at spellingbee.com, they will receive study materials including the 4000-word Words of Champions guide for school champions that includes the 450-word School Spelling Bee Study list. They will also receive access to pronouncer guides, teacher-only materials as well as other spelling resources for their participants and champions.. The per-school enrollment fee is $175.
Why does each school need to enroll? Each school interested in sending a school champion forward to regional bees and on up to the National Spelling Bee needs to be enrolled. Also, the wild card entry program RSVBee that was offered prior to 2020 will not be offered for the 2022 National Spelling Bee competition. If you are a speller who wants to make it to the nationals for the 2022 competition, the only way possible is by winning bees starting with your school, district, county, regional, or any other nationally-affiliated spelling bee in your area..
