2015 Spelling Bee for Literacy.
Tuesday, April 28, 2015. 6-9pm
Bee a Team for the Literacy Council
It’s that time of year again! The Literacy Council is pleased to announce that this year’s “You Won’t Bee-lieve It” Spelling Bee is open for teams!
When: Tuesday April 28th 6-9PM
Fifteen teams of three adults each will compete in the word challenge of their lives. The team that’s still buzzing at the end of the last round will walk away with the distinction: Best Spellers in Buncombe County!
• Teams must have both spelling and concentration skills in order to disregard the pandemonium caused by a costumed, cheering audience! Prizes will be awarded to audience members with the best costumes.
• Involve relatives and acquaintances from all over the world! Spellers create online fundraising pages to raise their team fee of $250.
• Pilfer another team’s word! Purchase supplementary details! Teams that raise additional funding can purchase the opportunity to “cheat” during the competition.
• Acquire valuable prizes! While only one team can win the competition, many teams will receive prizes for participating.Eager to compete? We will limit the competition to 15 teams, so be sure to reserve your spot by contacting Brantlee (email@example.com or 828-254-3442) at the Literacy Council.
