Premier's Spelling Bee

The NSW Premier's Spelling Bee is a fun way to encourage literacy amongst public primary school children

Across two weeks during September,  more than 3,500 students in Years 3 - 6 will be competing to make the final 100 who will represent their schools at the State Final on Friday, 2 November.

These talented spellers will confront tricky words such as 'disseminate', 'exuberant', 'semantics', 'viscount', 'desiccated', 'exaggerate', 'sagacious', 'laureate', 'ameliorate' and 'epitome' in a knock-out format competition.

Announcers for the 2018 State Final (held at the ABC Centre in Ultimo) will be children's author and broadcaster Wendy Harmer and newsreader Chris Bath.
