The Scripps National Spelling Bee (formerly the Scripps Howard National Spelling Bee and commonly called the National Spelling Bee) is a highly competitive annual spelling bee in the United States, with participants from the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, New Zealand, Ghana, and the Bahamas. State winners must be regional spelling-bee winners as well. It is run on a not-for-profit basis by The E. W. Scripps Company and is held at a convention center (generally associated with a hotel), currently the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center hotel in Oxon Hill, Maryland, in the Washington, D.C., area during the week following Memorial Day weekend.
