LEKOIL helps to support educational competition.
Spellbound Africa is an international spelling competition that challenges children studying in Africa, to learn new words and recognise them by sound, definition and etymology in an informal environment. In this competition, children between 10 and 15 years old show their ability to spell English words randomly selected from a prior-circulated wordlist.
Spellbound Africa is the first English Word-Spelling Contest among children in the English-Speaking African countries. The purpose is to provide competition among children of about the same age and educational level in the spelling of English words. It gathers the most hard working and word-versatile children in the continent and engages them in the spelling of words carefully selected from a word list of 2,000 words.
