Humboldt County Office of Education: Humboldt County Spelling Bee

Spelling Bee Winners

Humboldt County Spelling Bee

The Humboldt County Office of Education County Spelling Bee has been supporting spellers in 4th – 9th grades for more than 30 years. Spelling Bees promote the love of language and vocabulary.  Students not only study words and their origins, but also have the opportunity to advance to national competition.

Upon the announcement that the CA State Jr. High Bee was cancelled, HCOE is aligning with the Scripps National Spelling Bee to offer all K-8 public and charter schools the opportunity for their students to compete at the regional and national level.
