Southern Oregon University Pre-College Youth Programs coordinates the Regional Spelling Contest each year. Typically the winners of this contest move on to a State Spelling Contest sponsored by the Oregon Spellers.
For 2022, the Oregon Spellers will not be hosting a statewide competition which has informed our decision not to host a Spelling Contest this school year. We look forward to offer Spelling again when Oregon Spellers is able to return to normal operation.
