The Scripps National Spelling Bee is a highly competitive annual spelling bee in the United States.

It’s open to winners of sponsored American regional spelling bees,

Run on a not-for-profit basis by the E. W. Scripps Company,
it’s held the week following the U.S. Memorial Day weekend.
The 84th Scripps National Spelling Bee was held from
June 1-2, 2011 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center
in Maryland (near Washington, D.C.)
