The Department of Basic Education (DBE) has commenced with a Spelling Bee programme (on a small scale) in 2014, in an effort to improve the level of literacy among learners, especially in primary schools. The 2014 programme is jointly run with implementing partners who will run the competition up to provincial level.
The National competition will be organized by the DBE. The implementing partners are: Adopt a Child Foundation; Mzansi Spelling Bee; Extra-mural Education Project (EMEP); Spell It; Camp-I-Am; and The City of Tshwane.
Entry details and additional information about “The Spelling Bee”, including the contact details of each implementing partner and the provinces that they operate in, are available on the following link: http://www.education.gov.za/Home/SpellingBee/tabid/1222/Default.aspx
