The primary role of the Kenya National Spelling Bee is to promote a reading culture among Learners. The championship is designed to provide Learners with the opportunity to read carefully selected content during their preparation for the championship and thereafter a platform, to put their spelling skills against one another by applying strategies to help them spell both familiar and unfamiliar words correctly.

Noting that English is the predominant language of international education – in diplomacy, external trade, civil aviation amongst others, KNSB resolves to contribute to the development of Learner’s self-esteem, creating pride in academic achievement and in the process helping to build a solid foundation for their future education and careers.

In order to enrich the learning experience of Learners and to empower English Teachers, we organize annual;

  • Teacher training and sensitization forums across the Country.
  • Spelling Bee written tests for Learners.
  • Spelling Competitions where we Recognize, Celebrate and Reward the top Spellers, their Teachers and their Schools
  • Spelling Bee TV Show
  • Spelling Bee camps
