Spellbound Africa is the first spelling competition for children studying in English-speaking African countries. Spellbound started in 2009 and has been held in over 250 centers. The Africa Finals is rotated between African Countries. Every year, a Wordlist of 3,000 words is released for participating children to prepare with. Over 10,000 children compete every year.
The 2021 competition comes up in August 2021 and will be hosted tentatively in Kigali.
