E. W. Scripps

College Crew Member

May - June 2019 • Washington, DC

What I liked

I loved the exciting environment, the ability to assist with a national event displayed on ESPN, as well as the large amount of responsibility given to the workers during the internship. I also loved the variety of interns hired because everyone was very different states and in different majors.

What I wish was different

I wish that I could have been apart of the planning process for the competition, because this internship focused solely on running the competition and events throughout the week.


Talk to as many participants and employees as possible. While working the National Spelling Bee, all of the interactions that I had with spellers and Scripps employees are what made my experience so amazing. As a college crew member you have the ability to offer an amazing experience for each and every speller, so take the time to get to know them and make them feel valued.
