IMPORTANT! Spelling Bee Date Changes

To: District Spelling Bee Chairs, Club Spelling Bee Coordinators

The NJSFWC Executive Committee met on January 4 and reviewed the latest health and safety concerns and the feedback from Clubs. The timeline of the 2022 Spelling Bee Program has been adjusted as follows:

  • All CLUB LEVEL Spelling Bee contests (typically scheduled in January) should be postponed based on your local community and/or school safety guidelines. All Clubs/Schools that have already held or would like to still hold a local Bee should plan to do so. Club Level Spelling Bee Contests should take place by February 28, 2022.
  • The DISTRICT LEVEL Spelling contests (typically scheduled in mid-to late February), will be scheduled for March and specific dates will be announced as they are rescheduled.
  • The STATE Spelling Bee (currently scheduled for March 12) is being postponed to April 9, 2022.

Please notify your District Spelling Bee Chairman and/or Brandi-Leigh Miller ( directly of your club’s updated plans. We will be keeping a running list of your changes and will notify you of any updates to dates as they become available.

The safety of our members and communities is our top priority as we continue to monitor the guidelines related to the latest COVID variant.

Thank you for your patience,



Brandi-Leigh Miller
NJSFWC Education & Libraries CSP Chairman
