Chip Tolentino...athletic, social, boy scout and champion of the Twenty-Fourth Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, he returns to defend his title, but he finds puberty hitting at an inopportune moment.
Logainne Schwartzandgrunenierre (Schwartzy) Logainne...the youngest and most politically aware speller, often making comments about current political figures. She is driven by internal and external pressure, but above all by a desire to win to make her two fathers proud. She is somewhat of a neat freak, speaks with a lisp, and will be back next year.
Leaf Coneybear (male or female): A homeschooler and the second runner-up in his district, Leaf gets into the competition on a lark: the winner and first runner-up had to go to the winner’s Bat Mitzvah. Leaf comes from a large family of former hippies and makes his / her own clothes. Leaf spells words correctly while in a trance. Most of the words that are assigned are South American rodents with amusing names.
William Barfee...Putnam County Spelling Bee finalist last year, he was eliminated because of an allergic reaction to peanuts and is back for vindication. His famous "Magic Foot" method of spelling has boosted him to spelling glory, even though he only has one working nostril and a touchy, bullying personality. He develops a crush on Olive.
Marcy Park...recent transfer from Virginia, Marcy placed ninth in last year's nationals. She speaks six languages, is a member of all-American hockey, a championship rugby player, plays Chopin and Mozart on multiple instruments, sleeps only three hours a night, hides in the bathroom cabinet, and is getting very tired of always winning. She is the poster child for the Over-Achieving Asian, and attends a Catholic school called "Our Lady of Intermittent Sorrows." She is also not allowed to cry.
Olive Ostrovsky...young newcomer to competitive spelling. Her mother is in an ashram in India, and her father is working late, as usual, but he is trying to come sometime during the bee. Having found comfort in its words and vastness, Olive made friends with her dictionary at a very young age, helping her to make it to the competition. She starts enormously shy, and shyly blossoms.
Rona Lisa Peretti...number-one realtor in Putnam County, a former Putnam County Spelling Bee Champion herself, and the returning moderator. She is a sweet woman who loves children, but she can be very stern when it comes to dealing with Vice Principal Panch and his feelings for her. Her interest in the competition is unflagging and drives it forward.
Vice Principal Panch (male or female)...After five years absence from the Bee, Panch returns as judge. There was an "incident" at the Twentieth Annual Bee, but he / she claims to be in "a better place" now (or so we think), thanks to a high-fiber diet and Jungian analysis.
Mitch Mahoney...Official Comfort Counselor. An ex-convict, Mitch is performing his community service with the Bee, and hands out juice boxes to losing students. He has no idea how to offer comfort, but does find himself wishing he could find a way to make the kids feel better. E4 - A5
Carl Dad...Schwarzy's main trainer, the more intense and competitive of Schwarzy's fathers.
Dan Dad...the more laid back and ineffectual of Schwarzy's fathers.
Olive's Dad...fantasy version of Olive's dad coming to the bee from work.
Olive's Mom...fantasy version of Olive's mom at her Ashram in India.

FAIR LENDING TESTING PROGRAM
· LIHS recruits and trains individuals to be testers that will help gather information about current market and industry practices. Fair housing laws protect everyone from unlawful housing discrimination. Through its testing program, LIHS’ ability to investigate real estate-related transactions and practices (rentals, sales, insurance and lending) and aid with the enforcement of local, state, and federal fair housing laws is enhanced significantly. Testing (aka investigation) is an investigative tool used to gather evidence. Generally, fair housing testing refers to the use of individuals who, without a bona fide [genuine] intent to rent or purchase a home, apartment or other dwelling, or without a bona fide intent to apply for a mortgage loan, pose as prospective renters and purchasers of real estate or borrowers for the purpose of gathering information which may indicate whether a housing provider or lender is complying with fair housing and lending laws. In essence, testers would be going ’undercover’ like mystery shoppers to lending institutions and pretending to be applying for mortgages with the financial information we provide them. The tester then writes a report about how they were treated by the bank and what loan options the bank offered them. We use those reports to see if any discrimination has occurred. Courts have found testing to be persuasive evidence and sometimes the only credible or competent evidence available to corroborate an allegation of housing or lending discrimination. This type of investigation has been used since the Civil Rights Era and is a completely legal and credible form of investigation.
