Q. How do homeschoolers enroll in the 2020 National Spelling Bee?
A. Homeschool support groups or co-ops can enroll in the Scripps National Spelling Bee just like other students. Early registration is May 1 through October 15 with a discounted fee of $115 per individual homeschool family or $165 per group. Regular registration ends December 20, 2019, with a fee of $190 per individual homeschool family or $240 per group.
After registration, your group will receive everything it needs to administer the spelling bee program: study words, rules, pronouncer guides, and certificates for participation in the bee.
If you live in an area with no homeschool association, group, or co-op, you can enroll in the Scripps National Spelling Bee program as a family. On the Scripps website, select the Enroll button in the upper-right corner of the home page. During step two of the enrollment process, select “Click here to request the addition of your school link” and then choose “Home School (Family) as your school type.
