The University of South Dakota provides students in grades 1-8 the opportunity to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee program. For students to participate in the USD Scripps spelling bee program, or any of South Dakota’s six regional spelling bees, your school must enroll with the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Early bird enrollment ends Sept. 30.

Enroll and pay the $136 fee by Sept. 30, and in addition to the benefits from Scripps, USD will send your school an early-bird enrollment pack filled with items for your students to use at recess or gym class and a few items for the classroom. Late enrollment is Oct. 16-Dec. 11 with a fee of $211.

If needed, there are options available to assist schools with the fee.
