The Albuquerque Journal is again proudly sponsoring the New Mexico Spelling Bee.

The New Mexico Spelling Bee is scheduled for March 21, 2015 at Sandia Preparatory School in Albuquerque. Check the NM Bee website and the national website for updated information.

A vocabulary component will be included again to the NM Bee to align with the national bee. Vocabulary rounds are NOT required to be incorporated into spelling bees on any other level in New Mexico.

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 by October 15, 2014. The fee is $130. 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 19, 2014 and December, 13, 2014 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!
