For the past 21 years, one or more of the NSB champions have used Hexco products. This makes a total of 35 NATIONAL SPELLING BEE WINNERS, counting the ties along the way and 7 of the 8 octo-champs in 2019. Did you know that seven out of the eight "octo-champs" in 2019 were Hexco customers, and one was coached? Zaila, who won the 2021 National Spelling Bee, also won the Kaplan-Hexco online spelling bee in 2020!
In addition to creating a number of printed study materials listed below, Hexco has designed a user-friendly online interface to help spellers across the nation expand their lexicons and master challenging lists. Many of our spelling products are available in this eMentor format. To learn more, you can view all eMentors tailored for NSB prep here, or sign up for a free demo!
If you are new to the NSB or unsure which products are the best fit for your speller, we recommend visiting Linda's Spelling Plan. We also recommend reading our After-A-Spell newsletter for a recap of the national event and subscribing to our Weird Word mailing list to receive fun and challenging new words.
