About the Competition


For the first time in Morocco, the Moroccan English Spelling Competition (MESC) takes place in its first edition in Kenitra, Organized by the Winds of Change Association for Social Development.


The organizers of this unique event are the Winds of Change Association for Social Development, and its partners namely the Regional Academy of Education in Kenitra.

In this competition will participate public and private high school’s students from different moroccan cities at the beginning it will cover both Kenitra and Rabat.



The main goal of this competition is to encourage high schools students in order to learn English and to improve their life, in all its levels. Learning English might be one of the most important things we can ever do, since it will allow us to :

Get access to knowledge
What are you interested in? Is it science? Computers? Health? Business? Sports? Today’s media -such as the Internet, television, and the press -give you almost unlimited access to knowledge about your favorite subjects. After all, we live in the information age, don’t we?

Communicate with people
We like to call English “the language of communication”. Why? Because it seems all the people in the world have agreed to use English to talk to each other.

Push your career forward
If you want a good job in business, technology, or science, get out of that armchair and start learning English now! (If you already have a good job, start learning before you lose it!)

Enjoy art like never before
English lets you feel the culture of the world like no other language. With a good knowledge of the English language, you can do wonderful things:
• Watch American and British films in the original.
• Read great books.
