How Does the HesBEE Work?

 

Spellers compete within their grade level using words randomly selected from a list divided into three tiers:  “One Bee” for grades 1 to 3;  “Two Bee” for grades 4 to 6;  “Three Bee” for grades 7 and 8. If spellers go through all of the words in their tier, words are then selected from the next tier. Spellers can ask for a word’s definition and/or use in a sentence to help them. 

 

The complete list of 450 words – provided by the Scripps National Spelling Bee – are available here- HesBee Spelling list

The winners from each grade will compete against each other in early 2020 for a spot in the L.A. County regional bee. The regional champion advances to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C.!
