Students in grades 3-8 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.“

In light of the 15%+ increase in positive COVID cases in Somerset County in the last weeks and after careful consideration for the health and safety of our community members and students, we determined that SCLSNJ would not be sponsoring a spelling bee this year.
However, registered schools will still be able to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee via an at-large online program. Scripps sent us the information below:
Schools will remain enrolled and will have an option to compete through at-large online program administered this year by the Scripps National Spelling Bee. If schools have further questions they may direct inquiries to our school customer service team at www.spellingbee.com/contact.
