Dear Spelling Bee Coordinators, Teachers and Administrators:

 

The Albuquerque Journal is again sponsoring the New Mexico Spelling Bee and is honored to be doing so!

The New Mexico Spelling Bee is scheduled for March 18, 2017 at Sandia Preparatory School in Albuquerque.  Check the Web site www.spellingbee.com  for updated information. A vocabulary component will be added again to the bee to align with the national bee. Vocabulary is NOT required to be incorporated into spelling bees on all levels in New Mexico.  Go to the national website for more information.

The winner of the New Mexico Spelling Bee goes on to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D.C. The champion and a parent’s airfare, hotel, food and official tour expenses will be paid for by the Albuquerque Journal.

You MUST register your school with the Scripps National Spelling Bee at www.spellingbee.com before October 14, 2016 (there is a late fee after this deadline). The fee is $145. Scripps does not take POs.  You may pay by credit card or check (there is a $7.50 processing fee for checks).  Only spellers from schools that have enrolled between August 22, 2016 and December 12, 2016 with the national bee are eligible to participate in the New Mexico Spelling Bee and the Scripps National Spelling Bee.  The Journal does not require any payment or fees beyond what is required by Scripps.

 

After you register, you will have access to everything you need to organize and run your bee!

 

HAPPY S-P-E-L-L-I-N-G!!
