How Do You Access the Scripps Spelling Bee Word List?

The Scripps National Spelling Bee does not offer a list of their current words. The Scripps National Spelling Bee does offer the winning words of past champions and study material in conjunction with Merriam-Webster.

Scripps provides all 90 winning words in their spelling bee history, but does not provide the entire list of words from each spelling bee. The winners and their words are provided in one list, but users may navigate to each decade with shortcuts.

Scripps does provide extensive study material in the form of a study list for each grade, the "Spell It!" list, and then with word games for Merriam-Webster's Word Central. Each grade has its own 100-word list inside of the current year's School Spelling Bee List, but the list must be provided by a teacher. Teachers must log into, click on Student Materials, and then print out the list for a specific grade. Once students have mastered their grade's list, the site recommends that they move onto the "Spell It!" list, which provides them with around 1150 words divided up by their language of origin. After "Spell It!," students move onto Word Central, which provides them with word games to further improve their spelling.
