BENEFITS

  • Spelling competition help students improve their spelling, increase their vocabularies, learn concepts, and develop the adequate use of correct English. As a result, children are able to read and write more effectively and score higher on standardized test and college prep tests and beyond. The impact lasts a lifetime.
  • Children of all ages, creeds, and schools can participate on an equal, competitive basis.
  • Spelling bees help teachers, because bees improve spelling and arouse interest among the students.
  • Interaction with students from other schools
  • It helps reach out to schools across the country.
  • Spelling competition creates friendly, sportsmanlike rivalry among the schools.
  • 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.
  • It helps students become more engaged in their own education
  • Excellent Public Relations for participating schools
  • Teachers become more involved in school life seeing students outside the classroom environment
  • Sponsor’s rewards (scholarships, etc.)

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.
