The national finals of The Spelling Bee 2021 will be held on February 6, 2021, this year despite the glaring challenges of the pandemic.
This year’s event will be a closed-door event with only spellers, parents and guardians, as well as sponsors, to ensure the safety of all in attendance.
The Spelling Bee Contest has proven to be more than just spelling, however, it continues to impact the lives of pupils across the nation.
For the first time this year, spellers from marginalised parts of the country participated through the introduction of a virtual platform.
This year’s competition will be televised live on Citi TV on Saturday, February 6 at 1:00 pm.
The 2021 winner has the chance to appear on the Scripps National Spelling Bee in the USA to represent Ghana, the only African country that continues to participate in this international competition. Other prizes include products and souvenirs from cherished sponsors and partners.
Nadia Chelpang Mashoud from Tamale won the 2020 Spelling Bee competition, making her the first person from the Northern Region to emerge top in the contest which has been running for more than a decade. Sadly, she was unable to represent Ghana in the Scripps National Spelling Bee competition in the US after the contest was cancelled due to COVID-19.
