After a Spell is Hexco's annual newsletter that reviews the spelling year for the National Spelling Bee. Articles by top spellers in the nation are featured, along with the Hexco products they used. Percentages of words found in our products, which were also used at the bee, are highlighted and changes instituted for bees are recapped. Plus, we include the words used at the National Bee and regional bees, which make an excellent resource to prepare for your own bees.

"While I was preparing to attend Scripps' I received a newsletter in the mail from HEXCO. I became excited to learn things about the spelling bee that I never knew about and probably would not have known had it not been for HEXCO. After arriving at the bee I realized that this magazine had really given me valuable insights into how the spelling bee operates, hence, it never felt like a new experience." ~Owayne Rodney, 2010 National Spelling Bee participant and Hexco customer.
