Spellathon is a groundbreaking, new and exciting, FREE, global, digital sponsored spelling competition taking over the world from October; raising funds for learning disability charity Mencap.

Set in a futuristic digital universe & presented by 'The Professor', a 3D bee character voiced by none other than Stephen Fry; Spellathon is fun playing, fast moving, highly visual game and can be played anywhere, by anyone - children, students, and adults of any age!

Register now at www.spellathon.net & BEE ready for the world's first, unique global Spellathon!

Whilst competing against the clock, against others or even in reverse mode, or rather esrever edom! Spellathon entrants pledge a target number of words to spell correctly whilst practicing ahead of the online global championships to be held in March 2012. All words spelt correctly, are "banked" in your hive and your scores are displayed on the global leader board!

Get your friends & family involved by sponsoring you to improve your spelling and raise money for Mencap via your very own 'JustGiving' fundraising page - automatically created with your Spelling Bee profile. Playing fun Spellathon games on a computer, mobile, tablet or whiteboard, entrants also gain access to their very own hive, full of engaging ways to promote their fundraising page and spelling pledge.

Stephen Fry, voice of The Professor said, "This is just about the best integration of imagination, education, technology inclusiveness and fun that I've ever encountered. Very proud to have been involved in it, even in the smallest way."

As players spell their way through the Spellathon digital universe they meet...The Spelling Bees! Spelling Bees are unlocked every time you fundraise £3/$5 for Mencap. Each bee has their own character and personality & will vie for your attention. You never know who you'll unlock along the way...DJ Bee, Fashion Bee, Princess Bee, Pirate Bee, Angry Bee and many more...

So sharpen up your spelling skills in time for the first ever-global Spellathon Championships, taking place virtually from 5th -- 11th March 2012. Hosted by 'The Professor', entrants will have 15 minutes to record the longest word run of correctly spelt words.

Each entrant will also receive an invitation to the grand digital award ceremony after the Spellathon Championships. During the awards, 'The Professor' will hand out digital trophies and prizes to the spellers, schools, universities and individuals that hit the top of the global leader boards and raise the most money for Mencap.

Spellathon not only helps people of all ages to spell in a fun, creative and engaging way, it also raises money for the learning disability charity Mencap, and in turn, 25% of the money students fundraise will go directly to the entrant's school, university union or college to help support students. 100% of individual adults fundraising will go to Mencap.
