Southern Oregon University Pre-College Youth Programs coordinates the Regional Spelling Contest each year, which is level two of the State Spelling Contest sponsored by the Oregon Spellers. Jackson and Josephine counties participate in the regional Spelling Contest with both counties advancing first place winners to the state level.
SOU Youth Programs was scheduled to host the Regional Spelling Contest on April 25, 2020. However, out of necessity, plans changed since the issuance of the "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order from our Governor, Kate Brown.
