The Foundation has been the sole sponsor of this initiative founded by Janet Lucas since 2004. The NZ Spelling Bee currently encompasses over 1000 schools across the country (and some adult education classes too). Year 9 and 10 students compete to win the prize of top speller.
We currently supply spelling resources to over 1000 schools throughout the country, as well as to adult education initiatives. Our vision is to create articulate readers and writers who may go on to higher education with confidence.
