The Centro Spelling Bee is an annual project of the Rotary Club of Sta. Rosa Centro. This forms part of the club’s thrusts towards Literacy and the Youth, both very important areas of focus of Rotary International.
The first Spelling Bee was held on February 7, 2015 at Sta. Rosa Elementary School Central 2 where a total of 17 schools sent their best spellers to compete; with 11 grade school contestants and 13 high school contestants. For this year, the contest will be held at the 4/F Multi-Purpose Hall of the Sta. Rosa City Hall on February 27, 2016, where the club is estimating about 30 schools to join this battle of wits.
The major sponsors for the 2nd Centro Spelling Bee are : One Meralco Foundation, SM Foundation, Convergys Sta. Rosa and Leon Arcillas Foundation.
