Spelling Bee


The FACCS Regional and State Spelling Bees are oral spelling bees for students in grades 1-12. At the Regional Spelling Bees, participants spell down to the top four (4) placements, who then advance to the State Spelling Bee. 

To participate, schools and home school families must first enroll to participate in FACCS events. Then each participant must be registered by the school or home educator for the Regional bee. 

Words are taken from the FACCS Master Word List, released to schools and homeschoolers upon completion of enrollment.
