20+ Years of Spelling Bees contains all of Hexco's After a Spell spelling bee newsletters from the years 1991 to the current published year. (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, percentages of words found in our products are highlighted, and changes instituted for bees are recapped. Words used at the National Spelling Bee and regional bees from 1991 to the most recently published newsletter are included, which make an excellent resource to prepare for your own bee.
We are now approaching our 35th year of collecting words and writing spelling bee products. Formerly called our After a Spell Collection, we are proud to offer this product with over 20 years of National Spelling Bee newsletters complete with annual word lists in one printed product.
Good luck and good spelling!

While I was preparing to attend Scripps' (National Spelling bee), I received a newsletter in the mail from HEXCO. I became excited to learn things about the spelling bee that I never knew 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..." ~ Owayne Rodney, 2010 National Spelling Bee participant and Hexco customer.
