Information and Instructions for the 2023-24 GAE Spelling Bee

The Georgia Association of Educators (GAE) is proud to sponsor the Scripps National Spelling Bee for the state of Georgia. The GAE State Spelling Bee offers Georgia students an opportunity to exhibit their proficiency in the art of spelling and, just as importantly, vocabulary.

The GAE membership would like to congratulate Georgia's Spelling Bee Champion Sarv Dharavane and Runner-up Matthew Baber on their excellent efforts at the Scripps National Spelling Bee Championship. Sarv made it to round 6 and tied for 22nd and Matthew made it to round 4 and tied for 60th. Matthew has now aged out but we expect to see Sarv back next year!


Dear Spelling Bee Coordinator:

The Georgia State Spelling Bee Committee of the Georgia Association of Educators (GAE) will begin planning for the 2024-2025 Bee season this summer. The committee looks forward to another exciting and fruitful year of spelling bee competitions throughout the state.  All 2024 Scripps participant schools will receive an email in mid-August detailing everything they will need to know about the registering for the 2024-2025 Bee season.

Tune in during Scripps Bee week -- Sunday, May 26, to Friday, May 31 -- to cheer on Georgia's two representatives, Sarv Dhararvane and Matthew Baber!

Susan Tallant, Chair
GAE State Spelling Bee Committee

GAE Bee Information

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 the internet for Bee study resources.
