The Los Angeles County Regional Spelling Bee is a competition held each year in March for district-level spelling champions in grades 4 to 8. Each district in the county is invited to send one district winner to compete in the county's regional competition, which tests the skills, smarts and stamina of the participating students.
The top two, grades 4-6, winners of the regional competition are sponsored by LACOE to participate in the California State Elementary Spelling Bee in May. The overall winner is sponsored by LACOE to participate in the Scripps National Spelling Bee, also in May. All students involved receive participation certificates and gift bags, with the top three spellers also receiving trophies.
