Premier's Spelling Bee

The Premier's Spelling Bee was introduced in 2004 as a fun and educational way for primary school students to engage in spelling. The program includes activities to encourage all students to engage with spelling and to promote improved literacy in combination with the English K-6 Syllabus.
Who is eligible to compete?
The Premier's Spelling Bee is open to all NSW government primary, central and community schools. The competition comprises two divisions – Junior for Years 3&4 and Senior for Years 5&6. Each school can enter a maximum of two students per division (i.e. a maximum of four students per school).

What are the competition stages?
• School: Schools either follow official competition procedures or devise their own spelling activities to select students (a maximum of 4) to represent the school at Regional Finals.
• Regional: Regional Finals will take place between Weeks 9 - 10 of Term 3. The Premier's Spelling Bee Coordinator will advise schools of the dates and venues of Regional Finals in early Term 3. The winner of each division of each regional final progresses to the State Final (please note: the runner-up does not)
• State: The State Final will be held in Term 4 at the Eugene Goossens Hall, ABC Centre, Ultimo.
