give your students the tools to succeed

Over 11 million students in classrooms across America will begin an unforgettable journey this fall. Some will go on to compete in spelling bees at the regional qualifier and regional levels. The best of the best will advance to the national competition.


No matter what path their journey follows, your students will gain knowledge in spelling and vocabulary that will help them shine their light on the world.
