In a one-of-its-kind competition, The Navhind Times in collaboration with the department of event management of S S Dempo College of Commerce and Economics, Cujira, organised Spell Bee 2019, exclusively for college students. The objective of the competition was to enable college students to test and improve their spelling skills and cultivate a healthy competitive spirit. Applications were open not just for college teams but individual entries too were welcomed.
The first round which was a written test was held on September 28 at the S S Dempo College, Cujira. The written test included choosing the right spelling, meanings and a crossword. The 45-minute paper was not easy as mentioned by some students and participants were marked not just on their score but also the time taken to answer the paper. 104 students from 28 colleges across the state participated. NKIS computers are the sponsors for the competition.
The next round which is the elimination round will be announced soon.
