Register for the 2017 New Zealand Spelling Bee

(Year 9 - 10 Students)

Registration for the 2016 NZSB is no closed.  However, you are welcome to preregister for 2017 NZSB.

This Spelling Bee is a national spelling bee for Year 9-10 students. The aim is to help students learn new words that will benefit their academics studies and have some fun testing their orthography skills against their school friends and other like minded students around the country.

Students learn The 2016 New Zealand Spelling Bee Wordlist of 100 words. Teachers then administer The New Zealand Spelling Bee Test, a written test of 50 words from the Wordlist and 50 words the students have not seen.

The marked test papers are sent to the Spelling Bee Organiser to determine the 200 semi-finalists from around the country. The semi-finalists are invited to compete at one of five regional spelling bees held in August.

The top 36 finalists from the Regional Spelling Bees win airfares for themselves and their parent/caregiver so they can compete in the New Zealand Spelling Bee Final in Auckland in October. The winner receives the title of The Champion Speller and $5000 for the advancement of their academic studies.
