The New Zealand Spelling Bee is for Year Nine or Year Ten students who love words and spelling and want to improve their vocabulary and ultimately win a place in the NZ Vegemite Spelling Bee Final in Wellington in October 2013.
It is a nation wide event that starts with learning a word list of 100 words and follows with a classroom written spelling test at your school. Test papers are sent to the NZ Vegemite Spelling Bee organiser who ranks the results to determine the country’s top 200 spellers. This pool of spellers advance to one of five regional spelling bees held around the country in August.
Prizes include travel packages to the New Zealand Spelling Bee Final in Wellington and $5000 for the New Zealand Spelling Bee 2013 Champion.
Check out how your school can use the NZ Vegemite Spelling Bee as a fundraiser.
