The 4th Annual Scripps Discover Lehigh Valley Spelling Bee Presented by Service Electric Cable TV is a qualifying event for the Scripps National Spelling Bee sponsored by ESPN. The Discover Lehigh Valley Spelling Bee welcomes children in grades 4 - 8 from Hunterdon, Warren, and Morris counties in New Jersey, and Bucks, Montgomery, Northampton, Lehigh, Berks, Carbon, and Monroe counties in Pennsylvania.
Approximately 25,000 students from hundreds of schools throughout the region participate in spelling bees throughout the fall and early winter. One school champion from each registered school (approximately 150) is invited to compete at Discover Lehigh Valley’s written preliminary round; 50 of the top students will then compete in the final regional round (televised on Service Electric Cable TV). One champion will have the opportunity to compete at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in National Harbor, Maryland in June 2019.
