The above spelling bloopers have been taken from various printed media. A little more care in learning spellings, would have prevented the writer from making a full … just kidding … a fool of himself or herself. The need to focus on spellings is all the more now, due to kids using atrocious versions of words when texting and Instant Messaging.

In order to help students excel in English early on, NSF launched Spelling contests in 1993.

The contests are conducted every year in two steps for students in grade 1-8. Qualified winners of the Regional contests are invited to participate in the National Finals. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners from each contest at the Nationals are awarded scholarships of $1,000, $500, and $250 respectively, redeemable in the winners' freshman year of college.

You can download the word-list for the contest after you register for the contest.
