    Districts will be invoiced for this fee after the November 8, 2019 deadline.
    Districts must pay the $110 registration fee to SSC in order to send a student to Regional and Final, which determines if the student will be sent to National. Schools must pay the $160 enrolment fee to Scripps (by October 16) in order to be eligible to send a student to the National Spelling Bee.
    SSC will supply school districts with ribbons (1st, 2nd, 3rd).
