Each year, students in Grades 1-8 participate in a classroom spelling bee. The winners from each classroom then compete in the Oakman Middle School Spelling Bee. This year's OMS spelling bee winner was Dray Willingham, and the runner-up was Garrett Thomason. Dray Willingham then went on to compete against the winners from each school in the Walker County and Jasper City School Systems. He was runner-up in the Walker County Spelling Bee! The Spelling Bee sponsor is Mrs. McClenny.
