Pamplin Media’s Regional Spelling Bee to host state’s top spellers

More than 50 students compete in the 2018 Pamplin Media Group's Regional Spelling Bee.

Entering its 17th year, the Pamplin Media Group's Regional Spelling Bee began in 2002 to give Portland-area students an opportunity to compete on a national level.

Each year, the Pamplin Media Group Regional Spelling Bee invites fourth through eighth grade students attending Multnomah, Washington, Yamhill and Clackamas county public, private, alternative and home school groups to compete in the regional spelling bee. Students advance to the regional bee after winning their individual school bees.
