Spelling Bee


The New Zealand Spelling Bee is a national contest for Year 9 and 10 students. If you’re good with words, and enjoy a challenge, then the spelling bee is for you!

A 100 word list is given out in April of each year, the test takes place in June. The results are graded nationally and the top 200 spellers in New Zealand advance to the Regional semi-finals. Eight spellers move forward from the Auckland semi-final, and you’re in the National Final!

Last year these were televised, and the winner received $5000.
