The New Zealand Spelling Bee
sponsored by The Wright Family Foundation

The New Zealand Spelling Bee helps students gain a love of the English language and celebrates 12 years of orthography this year.  It’s also an exciting learning journey for students from Years 1–10 to learn words they can use with confidence for the rest of their lives.  Since the event started in 2005, thousands of students have taken part in classroom spelling bees, 2,400 have participated in regional spelling bees, nearly 200 have travelled to Wellington to compete in a New Zealand Spelling Bee Final and 11 have won the New Zealand Spelling Bee Final.

The New Zealand Spelling Bee has three programmes:
