“I’d never trust a man who could only spell a word one way”
We are hosting a fundraising event to raise money for 15 of our chairs, which are badly in need of repair. Regular visitors may have noticed that many of our large reading chairs are damaged to the extent that they need to be recovered. A series of fundraising events are planned and we hope you’ll join us for the first – a night of spelling fun!
The event is free to attend. We will have a family contest followed by a slightly more serious adults only contest.
6:00 – 6:30 Pizza and Soda (for sale)
6:30 – 8:30 –Spelling Bee
HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?
1. Gather a group of friends for your team (a team is a group of 2-4 people) *
2. Register your team by clicking here and filling out the form.
3. Fundraise for your team (optional)
4. Attend the event
On the night of the event, your team will be assigned to a table in the Stedman Room. You are encouraged come up with a team name and to make signs, or other decoration (costumes?) for your team table. Feel free to invite a cheering section of friends to attend.
During the event, each team will attempt to spell each announced word. Teams are eliminated if they misspell a word. HOWEVER, teams are encouraged to fundraise among friends and family because, if your team should misspell a word, your team will be allowed to stay in the contest by paying a $5 penalty for each misspelled word.
The first event will be a family event and the second will be for adults only.
Pizza, soda and baked goods will be sold at the event.
We hope to see you at our 1st Annual Library Spelling Bee!!!!
*Please note that this is intended to be a fun event. Unlike regular spelling bees where participants stand alone in front of the audience, team members work together from their team table. And we encourage spellers with all levels of spelling skill to participate. Becuz the worst you spel, the moore mony we raze!
