How Spelling Bee Works

Evergreen PTSA is excited to present the 2021 Scripps National Spelling Bee program to all Evergreen Middle School students. The purpose is to help students improve their spelling, increase their vocabularies, learn concepts and develop correct English usage that will help them all their lives. Spelling Bee is a great way for students to expand their word knowledge and learn how to stand up in front of peers and compete in a friendly way. 

QUALIFYING ROUNDS

The grade-level written test words will come from the Scripps National Spelling Bee Study List (One Bee, Two Bee, Three Bee).  The top three students of the written test in each grade will advance to a Mock Bee and the School Spelling Bee.  In the event of a tie or equal finish during the grade-level written test, new words will be given until the top three written tests per grade are identified.  Please note that although Spelling Bees begin with words from the Study List, they often end with new words participants have not studied.  Additionally, there will be NO make-up written test because it is a live test measured against other participants.  

The top three students of the written test in each grade will advance to a voluntary Mock Bee.  The Mock Bee is for practice only and introduces oral spelling to our 9 finalists while facing a panel of judges.  

Our 9 finalists will compete in the School Spelling Bee. 

One winner will represent Evergreen Middle School at the Regional Spelling Bee.

The runner-up will serve as an alternate winner and represent Evergreen Middle School at the Regional Spelling Bee should the winner not attend for any reason.
