Students in grades K-8 representing schools throughout Somerset County compete to earn the chance to participate in the annual National Scripps Spelling Bee in Washington D.C. Spectators are welcome to attend.
“We have a variety of resources that can help students prepare for the Spelling Bee as well as their academics in general,” said Jessica Trujillo, youth services manager for SCLSNJ. “For example, Lumos Test Prep has resources on developing a student’s study and memory skills in addition to the PARCC practice tests. All you need is your SCLSNJ library card number to access it from home or you can use one of our computers in the library.“
Want to participate?
- Find out if your school is officially registered with Scripps. Each registered school will hold a local bee for students, and the winner of that bee will be sent to SCLSNJ’s Bee Spectacular.
- If your school is not registered for this event, please encourage teachers and administrators to do so by visiting the Scripps website at spellingbee.com.
- The 5th Annual SCLSNJ Spelling Bee Spectacular will be held on March 7, 2020 at the Somerset County Vocational & Technical Schools Auditorium in Bridgewater, NJ. The time is TBD.
