  • The Spelling Bee is open for all grades.
  • Study material will be posted for each grade level.
  • The spelling bee will have both preliminary and main events. The preliminary event is grade specific. The main event is for all qualifying students.
  • The preliminary event will be held during a lunch recess in January. Words will be orally read to the students, and the students will write the words on papers.
  • Based on preliminary results, approximately 30 students will be selected to participate in the main event. The main event will be held on an evening in February 2018. The main event will consist of elimination rounds where students will orally spell words until we have one winner.
  • The school winner will qualify to enter the Regional Scripps Spelling Bee contest on March 25th, 2018.



We need volunteers for both the preliminary and main events. Please sign up on the PTA website. The PTA is sponsoring the event at Challenger only.

The school winner can choose to move on to the Regional event and beyond, but this will be at the responsibility of the parent(s).
