Bee Study Resources

The GAE Spelling Bee Committee does not furnish any practice list of words to use for your speller. The ultimate recommended guide is using Webster’s 3rd New Unabridged Online International Dictionary as a study reference (   Your school can access any Scripps study material once it has enrolled and has the receipt of the enrollment fee.  Those materials may be downloaded and printed for the school winner for ongoing study.

For additional popular study sites search for Bee study resources.



2020 Scrips National Spelling Bee has been canceled.  While a great disappointment to our state champion and runner-up Ananya Augustine, GAE applauds them both for their hard work and dedication.
