What's smarter than a talking bird!

The Spelling Bee Championship, Dubai 2011-2012!


Nine students participated in the first national finals. Today over a million students participate in the Bee from all 50 states to secure a spot in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, held annually in Washington DC. So electric is the drama that millions tune in to watch the live primetime telecast on ESPN & ABC.

The President of the United States invites the Winner of the Spelling Bee Championship to the White House- an 85 year old tradition. The contest has extended beyond the United States to American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Department of Defense Schools in Europe; the Bahamas, Canada, China, Ghana, Jamaica, Japan, New Zealand and South Korea.

Today, modified versions are replicated in the United Kingdom, Australia, Indonesia & India.
