The San Joaquin County Spelling Bee brings the best spellers in the county together for a competition designed to promote and acknowledge exemplary student achievement. These students previously won school or district spelling competitions in one of two grade categories--elementary division for 4-6th grades and junior division for 7-9th grades.

All 4-6th grade students must participate in the mandatory elimination round held at the County Office of Education 2 days prior to the final competition. The top 15 spellers from the elimination round will advance to the finals. The final competition will be held in December at the Wentworth Educational Services Center at 2707 Transworld Drive. After the county championship, the winner and runner-up in both divisions will represent San Joaquin County at the State Spelling Championships to be held in the spring.
