The African Spelling Bee is a consortium of 10 Spelling Bee organisations from Botswana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Nigeria, Malawi, South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
Together we have reached and impacted over 5 million learners across the continent through national spelling competitions, teacher trainings and reading interventions among other literacy interventions.
This team of literacy enthusiasts have come together to improve literacy and unlock our children’s imaginations on the continent, through creating the very first African Spelling Bee in July 2016.
The competition will involve the Top 3 finalists from every Country’s National Spelling Bee Championship. The grand prize is a fully paid under-graduate tuition scholarship to attend Monash South Africa
