Most of the spelling certificates are in color, but there is a black and white version too.

How to Edit the Certificates

You can edit each certificate with Microsoft PowerPoint or with our free online certificate maker.

To edit with Microsoft PowerPoint:

Click on the “editable version”. You will need to use either Microsoft PowerPoint or the free program called Open Office Impress (if you don’t have it, you can download it here). Open the award certificate using either of these two programs. Type your own text. Change the font style or size (optional). If there are sections you do not want to fill in (such as the signature which you might prefer to sign and not type) then delete the text that appears otherwise it will show on the printed version. You can save the certificate and edit it again in the future. You can also print it by going to file -> edit -> print.

To edit with our online certificate maker:

Select the certificate template that you want to use. Click on “customize” and the certificate maker will open.

How to Save Time

It only takes about two minutes to edit an award and it looks much more professional when edited before you print. However, if you don’t want to edit the awards, then just click on the certificate of your choice and an image file will open. You can print it (by going to file->edit->print) or save it on your computer.

How to Add a School Logo

If you want to add your school logo, then you will need to use our certificate maker. To use it, click on the blue button under the template you select. Click on “Add Image” and add your logo. Drag it to wherever you want it to appear.

Who Should Receive an Award?

You can award a certificate to the winner only, but it is better to award one to each participant to recognize their effort even if they didn’t win. The goal is to get students to participate and to improve their spelling, not necessarily to win. Therefore, it is important to encourage and motivate all participants. You can also give awards to the student in the first, second, and third places.
