The decision to postpone the 3rd edition of The Challenge, which was earlier scheduled for Friday, September 30th, 2016, was reached at an emergency meeting of the crew on 18th September 2016. This decision was necessitated by the late resumption date of schools, and the appeal by a few school administrators for a bit more time to prepare their spellers.
The new date for the spelling competition has been fixed for November 11th, 2016.
Time remains 9:00am.
Venue remains Ibom E-Library, IBB Avenue, Uyo.
Those eligible to register for the spelling bee are children below 14 years of age, in Nursery/Primary and Junior Secondary Schools.

- Word Works Bookshop, 67 Oron Road, Uyo
- Academic Needs Bookshop, 87 Ikot Ekpene Road, Uyo

All registered contestants will be taken through a training session to bring them up to date with spelling bee requirements. Venue, date and time will be communicated to registered spellers through their parents/guardians or schools.
It can be recalled that the 2nd Edition of the Challenge was held on November 7th, 2015.
