What’s Involved?

Spelling Bae is simple: participants are given words to spell aloud 😮 while coworkers look on and bite their nails in suspense 😬. Each round is harder than the last and the remaining contestant wins!

The event takes roughly 90 minutes to complete and involves very little set-up. A mic, a podium, a little 🎶🎵, and you’re good to go! Participants are given official Spelling Bae badges and the winner receives a prize, bragging rights until the end of time 🙌, and this gorgeous certificate:


Spelling Bae follows an official set of rules and ensures that each round contains words of even difficulty 💪. Authority: Canadian Oxford Dictionary, Second Edition.
