Insider’s Guide to the 2016 Scripps National Spelling Bee – The Journey Begins

This morning, my family and I departed from Louisville, Kentucky and arrived in Washington D.C.

The main event today was a Spellebrity Welcome and speller orientation. This was my first opportunity to meet the other amazing spellers and it was so exciting! My favorite part was when I received my Bee Keeper, a picture book with interesting facts about each of the spellers. I am determined to get every speller’s autograph in my Bee Keeper this year!
