Scripps Spelling Bee Finals
May 26 - May 31
Every year, students from across the United States have the opportunity to participate in one of the nation’s oldest and most iconic competitions. The competition progresses from classroom to auditorium to civic center, culminating here at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland, where the national champion emerges.
The purpose of the spelling bee is to help students improve their spelling, increase their vocabularies, learn concepts and develop correct English usage that will help them all their lives, while delighting friends, family, sponsors and fans.
