The Literacy Council’s 27th Annual Spelling Bee crowned Malaprop’s Buzz Killz as this year’s winners.
The Imagination Librarians judged the event with aplomb despite the weight of their wigs.
It was a fierce competition that came down to the final three teams: The Words & The Bees (Soomo Learning), The Phonetix (ESOL Tutor Team), and The Buzz Killz (Malaprop’s). After The Words & The Bees were eliminated, The Phonetix and The Buzz Killz went head to head to the finish.
HUGE thanks you to all the teams that competed this year!
