At the National Spelling Bee, contestants demonstrated their literacy skills by spelling
words in both Sesotho and English. There were 2 tiers of students, those competing at the primary school level and those competing at High School level. Two winners, one from each grade group, were crowned. The purpose of this spelling bee project is to encourage Basotho students to practice and improve their literacy skills including vocabulary, word structure and writing abilities. The regional and national spelling bees also encourage students to think under pressure and build confidence.
