The Big Spelling Bee is a fun and educational event where students get an opportunity to improve their spelling and increase their vocabulary while at the same time supporting and raising awareness of Big Brothers Big Sisters’ local mentoring programs.

According to a past research study conducted by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Children and Youth who have a Big Brothers or Big Sister are:

  • Twice as likely to have high academic achievement
  • Two and a half times more likely to participate in extra-curricular activities

The 2017 Big Spelling Bee events in each community will run during the months of February and March. Watch our facebook page and twitter feed for updates or visit spellingbee.com to register your school.
