What is SPELLDOWN?

Spelling bee, also called spelling match, or spelldown, contest or game in which players attempt to spell correctly and aloud words assigned them by an impartial judge. Competition may be individual, with players eliminated when they misspell a word and the last remaining player being the winner, or between teams, the winner being the team with the most players remaining at the close of the contest. 

The spelling bee is an old custom that was revived in schools in the United States in the late 19th century and enjoyed a great vogue there and in Great Britain. In the United States, local, regional, and national competitions continue to be held annually.

Resonance is one such institute that has been organizing this competition in offline mode since 2016.
