Spelling Bee Competition

  • A spelling bee is a competition in which contestants are asked to spell a broad selection of words, usually with a varying degree of difficulty.


    Spelling bees help to promote literacy by providing children with a positive goal to work toward, and give them a forum to display the fruits of their hard work. But they also do much more: In addition to improving spelling, the bees also aid children in learning concepts, improving comprehension and developing study skills.


    The benefits of spelling bees extend beyond language: Since children are required to spell words while on stage, kids also develop self-confidence, communication and public speaking skills, and the ability to thrive under pressure.


    The lessons learned by participating in a spelling bee can therefore last a lifetime, and can benefit even those who don't outlast all competitors. That will surely spell success for their futures.
