The Spelling Bee Ghana commonly called (The Ghana National Spelling Bee) is an annual spelling Bee held in Ghana since 2007. The Bee is run on a not-for-profit charity basis by Ghanaian Entrepreneur, CEO of Young Educators Foundation, Eugenia Tachie Menson and is supported by US Embassy in Ghana. The initiative was inspired by the Scripps National Spelling Bee run in the United States of America. Since its inception, the winners of the competition present Ghana at the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
This is the maiden participation of the PCE DEMONSTRATION JHS at The Ghana National Spelling Bee Competition, but that notwithstanding, the school has contested in series of municipal Spelling Bee competitions being organised by the Municipal Education Office and the Municipal Assembly, Akuapem North emerging victorious in all.
The School hopes to lift not only the name of the school but the Akuapem North Municipality and Eastern Region of Ghana as whole.
