Contact Spelling Bee

The 2023 Greater Grand Rapids Spelling Bee includes five counties: Allegan, Barry, Kent, Newaygo, and Ottawa. Each County Coordinator supports its schools which are participating in the Greater Grand Rapids Spelling Bee, disseminates materials provided by Kent ISD, and some also have long-standing county traditions. Each county has a Coordinator who arranges for the Regional Bee(s) in that county. Counties with multiple Regional Bees will identify multiple schools to host regional Bees. Contact your County Coordinator with any questions.
