Mzansi Spelling Bee entries now open

File pic:

The 2017 Mzansi Spelling Bee is open for entries from children between the ages of nine and 17, currently in Grades 4 to 11 in private, public or home schools.

Now in its sixth year, the Mzansi Spelling Bee challenge was created to enhance and encourage young South Africans to work within their communities to cultivate a culture of reading and spelling. The winner of the 2017 Mzansi Spelling Bee will represent South Africa at the 2018 Africa Spelling Bee and walk away with over R10 000 in gifts and prizes.

Endorsed by the Department of Basic Education, the programme has been developed to speak to children by combining learning and playing. The programme will be going to schools country-wide, engaging spellers to take part in this year’s challenge. One Word, a coming of age theatre production on the Spelling Bee, and movie screenings in local community halls and schools will be used to inspire and motivate spellers to take up the challenge to be Mzansi’s next champion speller.

Application forms are available on request and the closing date for entry is 31 May.

For more information and for their schedule and clubs, like their Facebook page Mzansi Spelling Bee, follow them on Twitter @Mzansi_S_Bee, contact them via email to, or call them on 076 250 4524.
