The Mzansi Spelling Bee is a national English spelling challenge for spellers ages 9-17 or currently doing Grade 4-11 in South Africa. The Mzansi Spelling Bee uses game, competition, social media new media and live spelling bee events to nurture a love for language and words.
The Mzansi Spelling Bee is a unique hybrid spelling bee making the best of new media and technology to reach deeper into South Africa while going back to the basic ABCs of language and the spelling bee. Technological innovation allows the Mzansi Spelling Bee to live in a virtual space that allows thousands of spellers from across South Africa to be part of the community of spellers and word nerds.
The Mzansi Spelling Bee is designed to develop the reading skills as they grow older. Each year the Mzansi Spelling Bee will give spellers a word list with words that build their working vocabulary, a vocabulary that will help them study and a vocabulary to challenge their abilities.
