The Bulgarian National English Spelling Bee is organized by the Corpus Foundation for Education and Development in partnership with the America for Bulgaria Foundation. The contestants spell, ie. Pronounce, different words letter-by-letter. The words for competitions are selected from a pre-announced list of 500 words. If a contestant spells the word correctly, it goes to the next round. If the spell is incorrect, the contestant fails. Spelling is an elimination competition and the last remaining contestant is declared the winner.


On February 28, 2019, the school circle took place at "Ivan Vazov" Secondary school, Sopot. Thirty pupils from the 5th, 6th and 7th grades took part. By the end, they reached a sixth grade and a seventh grader. The winner of the competition is Kristian Todorov Todorov from 7th grade, followed by Nia Nikolaeva Novakova from the 6th grade. The Spelling Bee 2019 first and second place students will participate in the regional competition on March 23, 2019 in the city of Plovdiv. We wish them a successful presentation. Congratulations to all participants.
