The Spelling BEE 2018 championship will invite a panel of schools from public, private and international primary and secondary schools in Dar es Salaam region only. The Bee intention of the Bee is to have all public schools participate in the championship through Public Private Partnership initiatives. We hope to achieve this goal within the first 3 years of the competition (by year2020). To achieve this, we have modeled the championship as PPP project that will receive support from the private sector, non-governmental as
well as government sector. To achieve this we plan to have the following:
1. Spelling Bee Championship 2018 – will focus on select primary, secondary public and private schools in Dar es Salaam. In this competition, we will have both the English and Kiswahili Spelling BEE taking place simultaneously.
2. Spelling Bee Championship 2019 – will focus in four (4) regions namely Dar es salaam, Pwani, Tanga, Morogorogo and Iringa Region. Using our PPP model, we hope to invite all public primary and secondary schools within the regions to participate at the
competition. During this completion we will have district level championships, regional championships and the National Championship. The top 10 students of every district will participate in the regional championship. The best 10 students will participate in the National Championship. In addition, we will introduce the Swahili Spelling Bee in Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya.
3. Spelling BEE Championship 2020 – We envision a national competition of all 27 regions of Tanzania. The competition will have district level, regional and national. The top 10 students of every district will advance to the regional championship. The top 5
students in every region will advance to the National Championship. National champions will participate in the East Africa Spelling Bee Championship that will be hosted in Tanzania.
