Ghana Education Service: Tips for Organizing Spelling Bee Competitions in School

Decide who will compete in your spelling bee. (inter-Class, inter-house etc.) This should be done at the beginning of the school year.

Reserve the facilities and set a date for the spelling bee.

Publicize the date and eligibility rules for students. Notify teachers, students, parents, administrators.

Contact local businesses, if necessary, to help sponsor your event.

Decide what word lists you will use. Let spellers know in advance. The well-known Scripps National Spelling Bee uses only Webster's Third New International Dictionary of the English Language.

 

You may want to use your school's spelling workbook word lists or make your own list. Whatever you decide, be sure that students have this information in advance, as early as possible.  Keep in touch with sponsors throughout the process.

Choose your Spelling Bee pronouncers and judges. Double-check their availability for your date.

Decide on your spelling bee rules. Send written copies to students, parents, teachers, judges and pronouncers.

This will help schools to organize a successful spelling bee competitions.
