The mission of Oregon Spellers is to encourage, promote, and recognize spelling excellence for the youth of the State of Oregon and to provide, with our sponsors, an annual state-level spelling championship and just-for-fun verbal bee.
In the OREGON STATEWIDE SPELLING CHAMPIONSHIP, County and Regional Spelling Contest winners compete on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend at the Oregon State Fair in a written contest against students near their age to determine the best young spellers in Oregon. (Oregon Spellers and the OREGON STATEWIDE SPELLING CHAMPIONSHIP are not part of the Oregon Department of Education, and are not affiliated with Scripps or the Scripps National Spelling Bee.)
