Top OC Spellers Advance to National Spelling Bee

Eighth graders Baominh L. and Sophia L. are the 2021 co-champions in the 2021 Orange County Spelling Bee, for the first time in OC Spelling Bee history!

On March 9, both classmates tied for the top speller in Orange County in the Final Round of the OC Spelling Bee, sponsored by the OC Department of Education (OCDE). The Preliminary Written Round and the Final Round were held virtually this year. A total of 14 finalists competed in the OC Spelling Bee.

Baominh and Sophia will move on to the 2021 Scripps National Spelling Bee. All preliminary rounds for this Bee will take place virtually. The top 10 to 12 spellers will be invited to participate in-person at the final round of the National Spelling Bee in Florida in early June.
