The Sonoma County Office of Education coordinates the regional and county elementary Spelling Bees for grade 4-6 students and the county junior high competition for students in grades 7-9. Sonoma County Spelling Bees give students the opportunity to demonstrate their spelling ability, think on their feet, and speak before an audience.
Elementary Spelling Bees
Grade 4-6 students participate in school competitions, then advance to the regional spelling bees. Two students from every school are eligible to compete in the regionals. The top five spellers from each regional bee advance to the county spelling competition. The top two spellers in the county event advance to the state championship.
Junior High Spelling Bees
Grade 7-9 students first participate in school spelling bees, then advance to the county-level event. The countywide competition is open to two students from every school with grade 7-9 students who have been certified as school champions by their principal or school coordinator. The top two winners of the county competition advance to the California State Junior High Spelling Bee Championship.
