Rally a team for the annual NEF Spelling Bee on Sunday, March 19th beginning at 3:00 PM. Your team registration fee helps fund innovative and enriching educational programs for Needham Public School students. The Spelling Bee is the only fundraising event the NEF holds -- we hope you will support our mission by registering a team, sponsoring one of our student or teacher teams, or advertising in our Bee program. Further details about our sponsorship opportunities are listed below.
The Bee is a community tradition that draws hundreds of spellers and spectators from Needham schools, businesses, and the community. Any individual adult or organization is welcome to participate. All student teams, including elementary, middle and high school students, are picked by their individual schools.
