Beginning in 2022-23, Sonoma County students may qualify for a regional virtual spelling bee run by Scripps, which coordinates the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. Students from the 10-county Bay Area (Sonoma, Alameda, Contra Costa, Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara counties) who advance from the virtual bee may then take part in the 10-county regional bee hosted by the San Ramon Rotary Club in February or March. The top two or three finishers in that competition will advance to the national Bee.
Elementary and middle schools that wish to host a Scripps spelling bee may enroll by clicking this link. Costs are $175 per school.
Seventy-four students competed in the 2022 Sonoma County Elementary ‘Virtual’ Spelling Competition, Group 1, held on Tuesday, April 5, and Group 2, held on Wednesday, April 6 via Zoom platform hosted by the Sonoma County Office of Education (SCOE).
