National Spelling Bee


Every year, students from all walks of life have the opportunity to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, one of the nation's oldest and most iconic competitions. They progress from classroom to cafeteria, from auditorium to civic center, delighting friends, family, sponsors and fans, just as millions of other students have done before them.


The Preston Elementary Spelling Bee will be held on December 3rd.  The winner of the Preston Elementary Spelling Bee (Grades 5-6) will advance to the Allen ISD Spelling Bee date: January 20th.  The winners from the Allen ISD Spelling Bee move on to the Collin County Spelling Bee in February. The Collin County Spelling Bee winners move on to the Dallas Regional Spelling Bee (to be held March 2022 – Location: TBD).



You must register your child for them to participate in the spelling bee. The deadline for registration for 2021-22 is Friday, November 12th.   Click Here to Register.


NOTE: If you are having trouble with this registration or your student is not showing up as eligible for Spelling Bee Registration under the Sales and Sign-up Forms section, please ensure your Family Information registration is complete and your student(s) are added to your account (as Grade 3-6).
