Eason Spelling Bee 2020

We are delighted to announce that The Eason Spelling Bee is back for its 10th year!

The Eason Spelling Bee provides the opportunity for students across Ireland to get off their devices, improve their spelling skills, make new friends and develop their vocabulary.

With thousands of primary school children having taken part in the competition since our launch, we are excited to find out which spelling superstar will be crowned our 10th annual winner in June 2020.

The Eason Spelling Bee Pack will be sent out to all registered schools over the coming weeks so you can run your own in-school Spelling Bee to find the best speller in your 5th, 6th Class (ROI) or Primary 7 Class (NI).

Every school that enters will send their school champion to take part in their local Spelling Bee County final.

Our All-Ireland Spelling Bee Champion will be crowned in June. Please Note: These dates are subject to change.


There are some great prizes to be won as follows:

• All-Ireland Winning School constitutes a book library to the value of €7,500
• Overall winner constitutes books to the value of €500
• County Winners constitutes books to the value of €50

Registration is now closed.
