Hello Spelling Bee Contestants!

This is to inform you of the timelines and updates of the TeamMasters Spelling Bee Competition (7th Edition).

The competition dates have now been adjusted to accommodate the current situation of fuel scarcity and difference in school resumption dates. We want to ensure stability especially in the fuel crisis so that participants and schools can have easy logistics plans and movement to the venues of the competition.

However, we wish to also inform participants and schools that this will be the final adjustment of the competition dates and excuses will no longer be permitted.

We sincerely apologize for the delay in communication as well as the inconveniences this may have caused. The competition dates have now been moved to May 2016. Competition Calendar is shown below.

Venues will be communicated accordingly once confirmation has been made on the change in dates. This would be done before the end of the month (April).

Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience caused. Together, we can make the edition successful, fun and memorable for everyone.

For more enquiries, kindly call 08094644634 or send an email to olurotimi.eyitayo@spellingbeenigeria.com.

Thank you for your usual cooperation and understanding.7TH EDITION CALENDAR

Finally, registration to participate in the 7th Edition of the TeamMasters Spelling Bee Competition has come to a close and the spellers from all participating schools are ready for the national contest!

The mock competition conducted was really an eye opener for all spellers as their mistakes were clearly identified and corrected. Common mistakes identified were;

  • Irregular use of the Life Lines
  • Not repeating the word after spelling
  • Not speaking clearly into the microphone

Spellers alongside coordinators and parents who attended were sure able to take note of all these and could use them to better prepare for the main competitions.

The District, which is the first stage of the competition kicked off in Lagos State starting from March 1st to March 12th. About seven (7) District Competitions took place within Lagos States, the last one scheduled to hold in 15th of April 2016.

The competition was a huge success in all the districts. Subsequently, other participating states will have their District finals commencing from April 13, 2016.

We say a Big Congratulations to the district finalists!

We hope preparations are underway at your end for the Zonal stage of the competition.
