• Cherry Creek Schools Spelling Bee

    Cherry Creek Schools Spelling Bee is affiliated with the Scripps National Spelling Bee. As a district, we have participated for the last two decades. Each year, elementary and middle schools around the district host a school spelling bee. Two years ago we had 100 percent participation from ALL schools in the district! 

    On January 28, 2022, a district-level spelling bee will be held, where the top three elementary and top four middle school winners from each school will compete in a formal Spelling Bee. It begins with a written test of 50 words: 15 vocabulary word definitions and 35 words to spell. From that competition, the top 30-35 spellers will move on to the oral spelling bee taking place the following day, January 29, 2022 at the Smoky Hill High School auditorium. The district Bee becomes an exciting showdown of spelling expertise and nerves of steel. The top 20 spellers earn an opportunity to compete at the Colorado State Spelling Bee on March 5, 2022.
