The inaugural Pakistan Spelling Bee (PSB) was held from October-December 2023 in both English and Urdu languages for grades 3 to 8 students. To ensure maximum participation, the nationwide competition was held in four cities: Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad and Peshawar.


With over 6,500 students from 215 schools and 38 cities participating, the Pakistan Spelling Bee 2023 had widespread appeal. LUMS School of Education (SOE), Storykit’s institutional partner for the project, will conduct the impact study of the PSB, which will be shared with the participating schools.

The highlight of the event was the introduction of the Urdu Spelling Bee, a first-time initiative aimed at promoting proficiency in the national language and nurturing a deeper connection to our literary heritage.


PSB partnered with Learning Alliance in Lahore, Peshawar Model School in Peshawar, Happy Home Schools in Karachi, and Roots Millennium Schools and Beaconhouse Margalla Campus in Islamabad, to ensure a comfortable environment for the participants.


The success of the Pakistan Spelling Bee 2023 was ensured by the involvement of key sponsors and partners, including Bank of Punjab, The News International, Oxford University Press, LUMS School of Education, Arbisoft, Creative Chaos, Ismail Industries, and Sukhan.
