The India Spelling Bee is India’s largest spelling bee competition. It is a unique academic activity combining the virtues of education and the joy of learning. It also goes on to promote a healthy competitive environment among the school children of India.
The India Spelling Bee was designed by acquiring certain inputs gained from the past spelling bee experiences in India. Organizers of this bee consulted with both students and academicians, to make sure they were going in the right way.
Students from anywhere in India can participate in this competition irrespective of their location, board, medium of education, race or gender. India is a diverse country, and keeping this thought in mind, the competition promotes this diversity. It is held in both urban as well as rural schools and institutions.
