Online Registration for Spelling Bee is now closed.

The Santa Cruz County Office of Education coordinates the Elementary (grades 4-6) and Junior High (grades 7-9) County Spelling Bee Competition. Students first participate in school spelling bees, and then advance to the county-level event. The countywide competition is open to two students from every private/public school in Santa Cruz County in grades 4-6 and grades 7-9 who have been certified as school champions by their school coordinator.

The Spelling Bee Advisor will register two participants along with an adult proctor from their site for the event.

All participants will receive certificates of participation and the top three spellers in each grade level division will receive a trophy. Winners will be announced at the end of the event.

The top two spellers from each division, grades 4-6 and 7-9 will represent Santa Cruz County at the respective California State Spelling Championship
