Capital Region Spelling Bee

In 2021, Scripps will be coordinating an online/virtual version of the annual Capital Region Spelling Bee. Capital Region BOCES is not a supporting partner for this year only.

All school inquiries about the local 2021 Spelling Bee may be sent to Scripps staff at

Students in grades four through eight and under the age of 16 can represent their districts in a Regional Spelling Bee sponsored each year by the Capital Region BOCES, The Times Union, Hannaford Supermarkets, the Sage Colleges, Upper Hudson Library System and Proctors Theatre. The winning student goes on to compete in the National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. in June.
