“Start practicing now as next year the world will compete in the first ever Global English Language Digital Spellathon Championships!
Spellathon is presented by ‘The Professor’, an amazing 3D bee character voiced by Stephen Fry and is set in a futuristic digital universe where the ‘Spelling Bees’ guide you through spelling games.
Entrants are given the opportunity to practice spelling while asking family, friends and carers to sponsor them to spell a pledged target number of words ahead of the Championships in March 2012. Raising funds for Mencap and, if applicable, their school or university union.
Practice will be fun with fast moving, highly visual, free interactive online spelling games, playable on a whiteboard, a mobile phone or tablet, at home or at school!”
