How Does the HesBEE Work?


Spellers compete within their grade level, starting with grade-appropriate words randomly selected from a list and then moving on to other words from the next grade level if necessary. Spellers can ask for a word’s definition and/or use in a sentence to help them. 


Check out the complete list of 450 words – provided by the Scripps National Spelling Bee – HesBee Spelling list


The winners from each grade will compete against each other in early 2019 for a spot in the Los Angeles County regional bee. The regional champion advances to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C.!
