SCRIPPS NATIONAL SPELLING BEE
AT EAGLE VIEW ELEMENTARY
Each year 11 million students compete in spelling bees at the school level, learning important new words along the way. Each year, EVES participates in the Scripps National Spelling Bee as one of our premier programs. We will be holding the Spelling Bee again in March of 2024, but details are forthcoming.
This year, we will use the Scripps National Spelling Bee’s online testing platform to hold our Bee via an online spelling test. There will be NO class level testing.
You can register here until February 13. We encourage you to watch this video tutorial that will walk you through the registration process. Please register each child separately.
Once you have registered, we will assign the appropriate test to your child. You child must complete the test before 8p on Tuesday February 21. Tests can only be taken once, so please be sure your child is ready for the test before they sit down to take it. Tests can be taken on any device with a web browser, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smart phones. Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge are the preferred browsers.
Help your student prepare by giving your students the 2023 School Spelling Bee Study Lists below.
We will host a virtual awards ceremony to announce the winner on Thursday, February 23 at 7p in the EVES Cafeteria. Our school champion will then move on to represent Eagle View Elementary School in the next level of the Fairfax County regional spelling bee program.
