congratulate champion Arushi Cumer and runner-up Ananya Augustine
2020 Scrips National Spelling Bee was canceled due to the pandemic. While a great disappointment to our state champion and runner-up Ananya Augustine, GAE applauds them both for their hard work and dedication.

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 (http://unabridged.merriam-webster.com/). 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.
Information regarding the 2021 Spelling Bee was emailed to all superintendents, principals, and last year's school registrants the week of August 20th.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be a virtual Bee platform offered by Scripps for schools to use in the event they are not physically in school.
