This competition is one of the fastest growing pilot projects in South Africa that promotes a culture of reading amongst the South Africans. The annual event attracted more than 48 book clubs made up of correctional services, high schools, and tertiary institutions as well as community book clubs. Members of 11 languages participated this year as NLSA promised to add all eleven official South African languages at the end of the 7th Funda Mzintsi Championship. The category “Spelling bee” was offered in all eleven official languages and book club were very excited to hold a spelling bee in their very own indigenous languages.
